About the matric results

News24 publishes the matric results in partnership with the Department of Basic Education (DBE) and the Independent Examinations Board (IEB).

Please note that some IEB students choose not to have their results published. These results are not available on the site.

Should you have queries about your results, or about specific details pertaining to your results, please contact your school.

How to find your results

Students who wrote the Department of Basic Education's National Senior Certificate (NSC) can search for their results using their examination number, or by searching for their school name and then selecting their examination number. These results will be available on the matric site on Tuesday 23 February 2021, excluding the Western Cape. NSC results for the Western Cape will be released shortly afterwards.

The results of students who wrote matric through the Independent Examinations Board are published by surname. These results are made available on Friday 19 February 2021.
