How To Check Your IEB Matric Results


Please share this article

Getting your Matric results is a major step in your school journey and is the first step to the rest of your future career. Here's how IEB learners can collect their final Matric results.


The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) is a private education assessment and certification body in South Africa. It is an alternative to the state-run National Senior Certificate (NSC) examination and is written by learners at private schools that are members of the IEB.

The IEB uses a different grading system than the NSC, with a higher emphasis on continuous assessment throughout the year, as opposed to a single final exam. The IEB Matric results include an overall percentage, as well as subject percentages and symbols, ranging from A+ to E.

The IEB qualification is highly respected by employers, as it indicates that the student has received a quality education and has achieved a high level of academic success.
