How to access your #MatricResults2016

THE anxious wait of the matric class of 2016 will end tomorrow (Thursday, 5 January), when the results of the National Senior Certificate examinations are set to be released at schools across eThekwini at 8am.

Matriculants can find their results as soon as they are released, using one of the following methods:

If you attended a public or government school, log onto the Department of Basic Education’s website.

You will need your

  • exam number,
  • home language and your
  • personal details (name, surname etc).

Visit your high school
The results will be released at the different schools at 8am on Thursday, 5 January, except in the Western Cape, where the results will be made available on the 6 January.

Call your school
Opt for the old-school method by giving the department a call on the day that the results are released. Just take note that a lot of matric learners will be calling in to find out their results so you might wait for quite a while. Dial 082 152 for your results.

The newspaper
Your results will be published in the daily newspapers, and News24 will also have them available online. While it will not be your full results, you’ll see whether or not you have passed and what symbol you passed with – a B for a Bachelor’s Pass, D for Diploma and so on.

Your cellphone
You can receive your results on your cellphone. The SABC has a News Break Matric Results Service which allows you to receive your results as soon as they’re released.

Follow these steps to sign up for the service: SMS your exam number and ID number to 35658 at an once-off cost of R3 when you register. When the Department of Education releases the results, you will receive your results via SMS immediately.
