2022 Matric Results


Thousands upon thousands of students who sat for their Matric exams last year have been disappointed – or worse – by the recent release of their final results by the Department of Basic Education. 

With the 2022 matric class achieving a 80.1% pass rate for the National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams, many have questioned whether there are options available for unsuccessful candidates or those who are dissatisfied with their results.


The Matric class of 2022 has been congratulated for making it through their schooling and exam period in circumstances that were not the most favourable. However, for some, the outcome may not have been what was originally planned, but thankfully there other options available for life after matric. 

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%.

The 2022 matric class shines with the second highest pass rate since 2019, despite having worked through numerous challenges amid the Covid-19 pandemic and rolling power cuts.

South Africa’s examinations quality assurance body Umalusi has approved the 2022 private and public-school matric results for release on Thursday. However, it appears that a number of learners may not receive their results.

The wait for the outcomes of the 2022 final matric exams is nearing its end, as the education department has confirmed that the review of the matric results is on track.
