The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) released the matric exam remark results for grade 12 candidates. Learners had until 7 July to apply for an examination remark and several took this opportunity and can now access their remark results.
After applying for an IEB matric exam remark, learners' exam scripts were marked for a second time to verify their answers. This verification aims to ensure that all the answers provided by learners were duly marked and that marks were collectively calculated and tallied accurately.
What Happens After A IEB Matric Remark
Some learners will be satisfied with the outcome of their matric exam remark. This as their results may have improved and will now allow them to pursue the next step of their academic journey.
However, not all learners who applied for an IEB matric exam remark will be satisfied with the outcome of their remark results. This is because applying for an exam remark does not guarantee that a learner's marks will improve.
Learners must understand that unsatisfactory exam remark results are not the end of the world. There are several options available to them if they want to improve their IEB matric results.
