EDUCATION Secretary Dr Michael Tapo says Grade 11 selection for 2015 has been completed.
A total of 53,413 students were to sit the Grade 10 national examinations in 2014 but only about 49,000 did.
The number of students who were eligible to continue to Grade 11 stood at 20,690.
These students will continue their education in Grade 11 in 103 secondary schools and six national high schools this year. Out of the 20,690 students selected, 7,919 are females.
Tapo said according to the standard set criteria, students had to score four upper passes or better to qualify for selection and awarded places in Grade 11.
Entry qualifications for secondary schools vary from province to province depending on their performance and cut off marks.
However, as a standard principal, students are graded as per their examination results to be able to qualify.
“In instances where genuine eligible students were overlooked and had missed out on selections, the provincial education offices must seek the secretary’s approval before enrolling them in secondary schools.
“The selection of students is dictated by the availability of classroom and dormitory spaces and the approved and funded number of trained teachers to teach in these schools.”
Letters of offer to selected Grade 11 students will be sent by the schools as per the addresses that the students enclosed in their school leaver forms.
