  • Who needs math…SA has lowered the ‘pass mark’ for Maths to 20%
    Posted by on Dec 8th, 2016

    The department of basic education in South Africa issued a circular last week stating that grade 7, 8 and 9 learners in the country who have passed all their other subjects except Mathematics will still be promoted to the next grade provided they got more than 20% in Math. The current pass mark stands at 40%, but a special dispensation has been approved where those that pass everything except Math will only need to achieve more than 20% to be promoted.

    The reason given for the drop to 20% was to ‘accommodate learners whose promotion to the next grade may be adversely affected by the compulsory requirement of passing Mathematics at level 3 (40%)”

    “There are learners who are passing all their subjects, six of their seven subjects but failing mathematics. And as a consequence, particularly in grade 9, they fail their standard because mathematics has now become a compulsory pass subject.” [EWN]

    Now you know.

    And here you thought South Africa’s pastor of Doom who claimed he can spiritually heal his congregants by spraying them in the face with insect killer HERE was the craziest religious nutjob on the continent. Well he can sit down because a bishop in Ghana is claiming his faith can enlarge the penises of men in his congregation just by cupping their manhood. Oh and he also can make women’s breasts bigger apparently by touching them.

    According to his own tv channel, Daniel Obinim of the International God’s Way Church says “What do you want that I can’t offer? If you want big buttocks, I can do it for you. If you want big breasts, I can help. If you have a small manhood, I can change them all when I come to the spiritual realm.”

    Check him in action.

    Ok then.
