The marking of the Matric papers is finished, but where can you access your results once it has been released?

The tradition of publishing matric results in the newspaper has held up despite calls to end this practice.

Viewing your Matric results in public or alongside your fellow class mates can be exciting as it allows other people to share in your success. But it can also be embarrassing if the results are not what you expect.

On the contrary viewing your results privately allows you to process your achievement or failure without the added pressure of meeting other peoples expectations.

The question many matriculants are asking is, "Where can I get my matric results?"

  1. You can check your matric results online by clicking here.
