The registration fee per subject varies annually and is accessible on the registration platform. It is essential to note that examination fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

IEB matric results carry significant weight with universities in South Africa and internationally due to their academic rigor and adherence to high standards. Many students who undertake IEB exams subsequently secure admission to prestigious universities both locally and abroad. In 2023, the IEB Matric class achieved an overall pass rate of 98.46%.

All successful candidates in the 2023 IEB NSC examinations attained a pass, enabling access to tertiary education at one of three levels: 88.59% achieved a degree pass, 8.31% obtained a diploma pass, and 1.57% secured a higher certificate pass.

A total of 15,186 learners sat for the IEB exams in October and November, comprising 12,580 full-time and 945 part-time candidates.

The quality of the 2023 IEB NSC examinations was assured by Umalusi, the quality and assurance body. Umalusi conducted moderation of question papers, supervised the writing of examinations, verified the marking, and standardised marks.

The IEB emphasised Umalusi's role in reviewing and accrediting their assessments and examinations to ensure compliance with national standards and uphold the integrity of the education system.
