Matric Results 2018 : ranking table for rugby schools

24 Jan, 2019 beet 77

Updated to include several IEB schools

Rondebosch produced outstanding results to edge out Bishops and finish top for NSC examination schools that perform reasonably well in rugby in their respective regions.
The IEB schools have been left off until all required data is available. What is known is that St John’s College had an amazing set of results and if their university pass rate is 90% or higher, they would finish above Rondebosch. Helpmekaar and Kearsney not only achieved a 100% pass rate, all their students got degree passes. Hilton were also amongst those that showed academic improvement as they closed the gap on KZN’s IEB leading schools.

Here is a table listing the matric results 2018 achievements and ranking of most of the rugby playing high schools who progress is tracked during the season on this website.
Please note that the weighting for this ranking relies primarily on University Degree passes and Maths/Physics achievement.
