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.
