Please share this article


The matric class of 2022 completed their final exams last week, and learners are now preparing for their results which are expected to be revealed in January 2023.


Marking for the final exams commenced on 10 December 2022 and will conclude on 20 December 2022.

According to the Department of Basic Education and Training (DBE) Minister Angie Motshekga will announce the results on 19 January 2023 and learners will then be able to collect their results from exam centres or schools on 20 January 2023.

However, not every learner will have received the desired results. If a learner is not satisfied with the results they received, they can request a remark or a recheck.

The last day to apply for remarking/rechecking of examination scripts is 3 February 2023.

Matric Learners are reminded that there are several programmes and improvement options available to upgrade their results.

The opportunity to improve your National Senior Certificate results is one that many learners chose to take to increase their chances at gaining acceptance into higher education.

Any learners wishing to improve their final results can register to rewrite before the following closing dates:

  • 8 February 2023 – registrations for the 2023 May/June rewrite examinations closes.
  • 15 March 2023 - registrations for the 2023 October/November rewrite examinations closes.

For learners who require any additional support, the department also provides support to learners wanting to improve their results through the Second Chance Matric Programme.

The programme gives learners an opportunity to increase their computer skills, job opportunities, career pathing and also gives them access bursary opportunities for further studies.
