Only 7% of first-year South African students proficient in maths

"With the current emphasis on the production of graduates in scarce skills areas such as engineering and science, the need for curriculum responsiveness and remediation in this area is urgent," said the report, obtained by University World News, which is still to be considered by HESA.

What I sort of wonder is, with only 7% of graduates having any proficiency in maths does South Africa even have Engineering and Science grads??
