When Unisa January/February Exam Results Will Be Released



The recent Unisa exams saw a significant number of student participants. The university has now revealed the timeline for releasing the exam results.



The University of South Africa (Unisa) has provided clarification on the release schedule for January/February 2024 exam results, which were concluded last month.

Unisa has commenced the gradual release of January/February 2024 exam results. The majority of grades are anticipated to be accessible by 10 March 2023. Any inquiries regarding mark releases should be directed to [email protected].

The January/February 2024 examination period encompassed year modules as per the original scheduling. It also accommodated students taking their second chance exams. Students who did not pass their second attempt were advised to register for their courses again.

Students have until 31 March 2024 to request a copy of their exam scripts or apply for remarking. The online application form for remarking is available on myUnisa. Alternatively, applications can be sent to [email protected].

Script purchases can be arranged by emailing [email protected], ensuring the inclusion of the student number in the subject line. However, it's essential to note that remarking or script purchases are not available for scripts flagged for disciplinary offenses or proctoring tool non-compliance issues.

Unisa exclusively handles inquiries from students' myLife email addresses. Messages from personal email accounts will not receive responses, adhering to the provisions of the Protection of Personal Information Act 4 of 2013.

Congratulations to those who have successfully completed their qualifications in this exam season, and best wishes to our returning students for a successful academic year in 2024.
