Worried about how you’re going to check your matric results in 2018? We have each method explained here, so that you don’t need to worry. 

Matric exams are officially over, matric weekend has been celebrated and now to find out the matric results…The last thing you need to worry about is figuring out HOW you’re going to check your results as soon as they’re released. Have no fear. We’re here to help.

Four Ways to Check Your Matric Results


1. Online

Bear in mind that website traffic will be high on the release date, so expect delayed response times.

  • Log on to the Department of Basic Education’s website .

You will need the following to log in:

  • Exam number (don’t misplace this during the holiday!)
  • Home Language
  • Your personal details (name, surname, etc.)

If you attended a public/government school, then your results will definitely be available on this site.

2. The Newspaper

Your results will be published in the Newspaper on the day of the results release. It will be in all of the big Newspaper brands, like The RapportThe Argus and The Star.

Remember it will not be your full results. It will just state whether or not you passed and with what symbol you passed – B for Bachelors PassD for Diploma, etc.

3. Your High School

Two days after the initial results are released, your school will give you your results. This is not the official matric certificate, it’s just your results for each subject. You will be able to fetch your official matric certificate in a few months – once it has been printed in full. If you are eager about exact dates you should contact your school to find out further information.

4. Your Cellphone

You can use your cellphone (or someone else’s) to receive your results. 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
  • There is a once-off cost of R3 when you register
  • As soon as the Department releases the results – you will get your results via sms immediately
  • The IEB website and News24 will also have the results available.

You could also 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 students will be phoning to find out their results so you might wait for quite a while to get your results.

Dial 082 152 for your results.

How to Prepare for Exams in a Short Space of Time [5 Easy Steps]

Exams times can be stressful if you did not make good preparation, but you can still do it within a short space of time. Here are 5 easy steps to crack it during exam times.

Step 1

Chart a timetable of available study time. Look at the time you have available and what your outside responsibilities are. Calculate the number of hours you will have available to study. Chunk out study periods of a minimum of two hours at a time. Longer periods can get too tiring so be careful of this. Take breaks. Without breaks you may lose focus and not learn as much as you think you might in long cram sessions.

Step 2

Review prior course materials and focus on what you know. If you are cramming for an exam it is not likely that you will be able to digest and learn a large amount of new material. It is best to start by looking over any old exams, study guides passed out and lecture notes. Review these for trends of topics and subjects that are talked about frequently. Focus on getting those topics covered first.

 Step 3

Write down subjects and topics that you are unfamiliar with. Learning new material will be the toughest task in a short amount of time. Take the topics list and if possible review your course materials to try to gain an idea over which topics might be tested on. Typically these are ones that have the largest amount of coverage in your text. Don’t spend a lot of time on text readings that are small compared to larger ones. Make a calculated decision about which to study.

Step 4

Study in a good environment. If possible leave home and head to a library or place that fewer distractions. Do not try to study with the TV on or with music blaring. Sit in a straight chair and never have a study session. Even if you have studied like this before, you are now on an intensified deadline that requires intense measures for success.

Step 5

Employ study techniques such as repetition, flash cards and mnemonics. For repetition, sit with your notebook and write over and over what you need to know. For example repeatedly write out the names of important persons you need to study. Draw flash cards with info on them and go over them constantly. Come up with silly rhymes or word associations to help you remember points.



It is the Department’s intention to promote equity (race, gender and disability) through the filling of this post with a candidate whose transfer / promotion / appointment will promote representivity in line with the numeric targets as contained in our Employment Equity plan.
