The matric class of 2019 will be anxiously waiting for the announcement of the national results of the National Senior Certificate (NSC) matric exams by Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga.
The Basic Education Department will release the NSC matric exam results on Tuesday evening during a live broadcast on TV from Vodaworld in Midrand, at 6pm.
The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) announced the private schools’ matric results at midnight last night.
The 2019 NSC examinations – which saw 790 405 candidates sitting for 147 question papers in 7 416 examination centres nationwide - successfully concluded in November 2019.
While Newspapers will publish the results on Wednesday, learners will also be able to head to their schools to find out how they fared in their exams.
Meanwhile the Council for Quality Assurance in Education and Training (Umalusi) has given their stamp of approval for the release of the NSC results.
At a media briefing on Friday, Umalusi Chairperson John Volmink said the 2019 national examinations went smoothly without any systemic irregularities.
Matriculants who may be anxious about their examination results have been urged to make use of the Department of Social Development’s Gender-Based Violence Command Centre (GBVCC).
