The grade 12 class of 2021 are just a week away from learning how they've performed during the National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations.

On Thursday, 20 January 2022, Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga will announce the outcome of the 2021 NSC examination. This will be followed by matriculants receiving their individual results on the next day.

Matriculants will have to go to school to collect their results. There is also an SMS service that they can use to have their results sent to them.

They won’t, however, be able to see their results in newspapers. This as the Department of Basic Education (DBE) has ordered media outlets to not publish the results in order to be compliant with the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA), 2013 (Act No. 04 of 2013)

The POPI Act came into effect on 1 July 2021 and seeks to protect the privacy of individuals. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.

According to the results release schedule from the DBE, the results are currently being approved by examination body, Umalusi. This is the final step in the process before Minister Motshekga announces the results to the country.

Some matriculants will not achieve their desired results, and this is okay. The matric second chance program was introduced to help individuals who want to improve their results. CLICK HERE TO READ ABOUT THE MATRIC SECOND CHANCE PROGRAM.

The NSC examination took place over a five-week period. The number of learners registered to participate in the NSC exams stood at 897 786. They wrote these examinations at 6 326 public examination centres, 526 independent centres and 326 designated centres.

More than 41 500 markers were employed to mark the examionsion scripts. These scripts were marked at 193 marking centres in South Africa’s nine provinces. Apart from a storm in the Free State that disrupted the marking process, the department is on course to release the results on schedule. READ ABOUT THE INCIDENT BY CLICKING HERE
