Matric Remark & Recheck Registration Now Open


The Minister of Basic Education has officially announced the final National Senior Certificate results for the 2022 matric year, showing a 3.7 percentage point improvement in the pass rate to 80.1%.



As of today, 20 January 2023, matric learners can collect their statement of results from exam centres and schools.

While many matriculants will be pleased with the outcomes received, others might be dissatisfied with their results.  

The department announced that registrations to have exam scripts re-marked or rechecked are now open and learners who failed or are unhappy with results for certain subjects are encouraged to request a re-mark or re-check.

However, It is important to note that re-marks and re-checks are not free, and a fee is payable in order for the department to conduct a re-mark or re-check.

The payment for re-marking and re-checking for the 2022/23 academic period are as follows:

  • Re-marking = R120 (per subject)
  • Re-checking = R29 (per subject)

The closing date to request an exam remark or recheck is 3 February 2023.

Additionally, if a learner is still dissatisfied with their results after having it re-marked or re-checked they can register to retake the exams or improve their results.

Speaking during the official matric results address on 19 January 2022, Minister Angie Motshekga noted that the 2022 cohort was the most resilient yet, facing pandemic challenges and one of the worst loadshedding years ever.

She said the increase to 80.1% marks the second-highest pass rate since 2019. All provinces improved with the following results (including progressed learners):

  1. Free State: 88.5%
  2. Gauteng: 84.4%
  3. KZN: 83%
  4. Western Cape: 81.4%
  5. North West: 79.8%
  6. Eastern Cape: 77.3%
  7. Mpumalanga: 76.8%
  8. Northern Cape: 74.2%
  9. Limpopo: 72.1%

Out of the 2022 matric class, 278,815 students achieved a bachelor’s pass, 197,357 (26.7%) achieved a diploma pass, and 108,159 (14.9%) achieved a higher certificate pass.
