Basic Education's Minister, Angie Motshekga, will announce the Matric results today as they are set to be released. Learners will then be heading to schools for their Matric results statements tomorrow.


Minister Angie Motshekga will be announcing the 2020 Matric results today, alongside Deputy Minister Reginah Mhaule.

This event is set to take place at 4PM. The announcement can be viewed on the DBE Facebook page and YouTube channel as well as on TV and radio stations.

This announcement will include the pass rate of the Class of 2020.

All provinces are also said to be ready for this announcement.

After the announcement, learners will be able to get their results statements at their schools tomorrow. When learners receive their statements, they should check that names and identity numbers reflect correctly on their statement of results and report any required corrections to the department before 30 June 2021.

Health and safety measures have been taken care of for learners wanting to fetch their results from their schools. However, Matrics are advised to not go too early in the morning as other school learners will still be outside.

A special line will be there for learners and assigned individuals will be available to assist.

Matrics can also receive their results through the Department of Basic Education website, they can SMS their exam number to 45856 or register using the USSD code *120*45856#.,

The Matric Class of 2019 achieved a pass rate of 81,3% and this is expected to have dropped this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Many matrics are excited to receive these results while others remain nervous for fear of failure. 

Cassey Chambers from the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) spoke to eNCA saying that parents should monitor these matrics and offer their support where they can.
