The 2015 class of matriculants writing the Department of Basic Education's National Senior Certificate exams performed worse than last year's class, monitoring body Umalusi said on Wednesday.

"There are a number of factors that affected this year's learner performance, which we hope we can correct," Umalusi council chairperson Professor John Volmink told reporters in Pretoria.

He said the poorer performance could be due to the high standards of this year's papers, but they could not compromise on the quality of education.

"The standard of the papers improved and catered for more challenging questions as compared to 2014. The standards of the papers might have contributed to the performance, but the standards can't be dropped just to push up the pass rate," Volmink said.

"Umalusi can't lower the bar for standards. They can only be improved in the classroom."

The results would be released next week.
