Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga will announce the final National Senior Certificate (NSC) exams on Thursday, 18 January 2024. During the ministerial announcement, pass rates for provinces will be released as well as the type of matric passes learners achieved. 

Matric Candidates will have to wait until Friday, 19 January 2024 to receive their results. These results are released at schools or examination centres where the candidate sat for their examination. Learners can also register to get their matric results online. 

While many candidates will be satisfied with their results, some may not have achieved the marks they set out to achieve. These leaders have the opportunity to improve their results without picking up a pen. 

Learners can apply for a matric exam re-mark or re-check. From 19 January 2024 learners can submit a re-mark or re-check application.

  • Friday, 19 January 2024 - Learners receive their results 
  • Friday, 19 January 2024 - Re-mark/re-check applications

What Is A Matric Recheck

Asking to have your matric script rechecked means that your paper will be thoroughly reviewed so that they can confirm that all questions have been properly marked and that the marks have been accurately calculated. 

What Is A Matric Remark?

If candidates feel as if their assigned marks do not align with their actual performance on the written papers, they can request a re-mark of their scripts. This entails a complete re-evaluation of the original answer script by a different marker.

How to apply for a matric remark/recheck

Application forms can be obtained from the centre where the exam was written. This application can also be done online by following these steps:

  1. Visit The Government’s Official e-Services Portal 
  2. Click on the education icon, which displays a graduation cap 
  3. Select the Basic Education Option. This will cause several options to appear. 
  4. Select Re-Mark/Recheck
  5. Fill out all the required fields in the online application and ensure all the information provided is correct. 
  6. Once satisfied that all the information is correct, accept the terms and conditions by checking the designated box (√).
