Matric Results Will Be Released On Time, says Dept

The Department of Basic Education is said to be on track as far as the release of matric results go. Matriculants should expect their results later this month as the 2021 academic year begins in March.



No delays in sight when it comes to the release of the Class of 2020's results. Matric results will be released on 23 February.

The Department of Basic Education (DBE) is currently engaging Umalusi so that they can go through the standardisation process. Umalusi is the quality assurance council and will have a say on whether the 2020 exam results are to be accepted.

"We are on schedule, the results will be released on the 23rd of February as planned," said Mhlanga.

Elijah Mhlanga, Spokesperson for the DBE, said:

When we are engaging with Umalusi, you must know that from our side we are almost done with what we are supposed to do.

DBE is set to present an irregularities report to Umalusi on 12 February and from there, they will wait for an announcement from Umalusi on the integrity, credibility and fairness of the 2020 National Senior Certificate exams.

On 15 February, Umalusi will then make the announcement on whether or not the results can be published.

The department has said that things are going well and that they are now going through the raw results.

Minister of Higher Education, Blade Nzimande, announced that the 2021 academic year will commence in mid-March. This allows universities to complete the 2020 academic year while also giving them enough time to send offers to incoming students.
