MTN joins the Department of Basic Education and provincial education departments in congratulating matriculants across the country for their hard work and dedication in the face of unbelievable odds.
As a reward for their efforts and stellar results, MTN Foundation is handing over laptop computers to the top 33 achievers nationally, as well as providing laptops to the top 15 achievers in each province. The top 15 learners in the ICT (CAT and IT subjects) and special needs category, nationally, will also receive laptops. Each of the 183 achievers will also receive an MTN backpack filled with stationery.
The Top 12 matriculants for Math, Physical Sciences (PHSC), Technical Math and Technical PHSC nationally for 2020 are, in order:

These tablets will be made available to Grade 10 to 12 Mathematics, Science, learners taking ICT-related subjects. We believe that these devices will assist learners to tackle difficult concepts in the subjects and enhance their academic performance.
“This past year truly tested the mettle of our matriculants, with leaners facing unprecedented challenges ahead of the biggest exams of their school careers. We congratulate them on achieving an outstanding national result despite the challenges.
