The wait for results is almost over for the Class of 2017 as Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga is set to announce the outcomes of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) Examination this evening. Below the article, you will find the codes to get your results via SMS and USSD.

In a tweet, the department said: “The President has now been officially briefed. Minister Motshekga has given President Zuma full details regarding matric results for 2017. We can now say it’s all systems go.”

Following the announcement this evening, candidates' individual results will be made available on 5 January 2018 at the school or centre where they wrote their exams. Their partial results will be made available on the department’s website.

A total of 634 527 full-time and 168 109 part-time candidates were registered to write the exams.

KwaZulu-Natal presented the highest number of full-time candidates with 153 624 learners. Gauteng, with 41 952 candidates, contributed the most part-time candidates in the 2017 NSC examination.

The department had made provision for 3 805 full-time and 544 part-time special needs candidates with barriers to learning such as dyslexia, blindness and deafness.

The Class of 2017 was the fourth Grade 12 cohort to write final examinations under the Curriculum Assessment Policy Statements (CAPS).

While the class of 2017 is the 10th group of learners to sit for the NSC, it is only the fourth to write the CAPS aligned NSC examination.
