This week’s release of the 2021 Grade 12 results will be a cause for celebration but the reality is that many matriculants don’t know what they will do next. For 12 years or more, school has been their world but now adulthood and responsibility are looming – and they will have to make choices that will determine their life path.


Following the release of the Matric results of 2021, countless young people will be faced with the need or desire to adjust their study plans for this year because they did not perform as expected, while many others will be faced with the happy news that their options have increased as a result of better-than-expected results - whether this be the eligibility to enrol for higher education, or enrol for a different qualification.


The annual tradition of purchasing a newspaper to see who passed matric will not take place as the education department has decided against publishing matric results on public platforms. 


Matric results are out and you might be wanting to get your exam scripts re-marked or rechecked. You can do that by registering!


The release of matric results is typically a high stakes time for many students and their parents, but pandemic disruptions throughout 2020 are adding extra angst. This week, the anticipation will be over, but getting these final school marks in black and white can spiral some young South Africans, and their families, into despair and crisis.


The marking of matric results has been going well for the Department of Basic Education. The Department held a live briefing to give updates about the process that was initially scheduled to end on 22 January 2021. 


More than 1000 teachers have quit marking, nationwide. There has been some concern about the Gauteng Department of Education, as the province that has lost the most exam markers. 


You can now register for the 2021 National Senior Certificate if you are an adult who qualifies to write the matric exam. 


The marking of matric exam papers kicked off on Monday. More than 4 million scripts will be marked before 22 January 2021. 


SABC Education has partnered with the Department of Basic Education to launch a Matric Results service. Candidates will be able to access their results across various platforms.


Now that matric exams are out of the way, teachers have started marking papers written by more than 1 million candidates this year. Results are set to be released on 23 February 2021. 


The Matric Class of 2020 has been through so many challenges this year, which is why they deserve for the marking of their exams to run smoothly.


On Thursday 5 November, matric learners across the country sat to write their first exams at 9am and 2pm. The Basic Education Department said the exams got off to a smooth start. 


After months of preparation, many learners across the country have started their final matric exams today with English Home Language. 


Candidates who test positive for Covid-19 will be allowed to write the final matric exams. This follows a petition which called for the Department of Basic Education to review exam protocols.
