Grade 12 Examinations


On Wednesday, grade 12 learners around the country will put down their pens for the final time. However, a lot of work must be done before they get their matric results. 

Thousands of Grade 12 learners are gearing up for their final school examinations. The education department recently unpacked what is being done in preparation for the critical exams.

Thousands of learners are expected to participate in the May/June 2023 matric examinations. The education department has now released the timetable, allowing learners to begin their preparations for the important examinations. 

While the Independent Examinations Bureau matric class of 2022 achieved a pass rate of above 98%, unsuccessful learners have an opportunity to rewrite their exams. These learners are encouraged to register before the closing date this month.  


Mathematics is recognised as a challenging subject for some learners. However, when matric candidates complained that one question was “unsolvable”, the quality assurance body was forced to investigate the veracity of claims made by many learners.


While the 2023 school year has begun in several provinces in South Africa, grade 12 learners are still awaiting to learn how they did in their final school examinations. The date the results are set to be released has raised questions about the impact it could have on tertiary education admissions.
