Matriculates Class of 2021 will have to wait a little longer for the results to be released. The national matric results for public school learners have been set out for announcement of 21 January 2022, a day after the ministerial announcement. The announcement from the minister will authorise the release of the results nationally.
As per usual the matric results get released the first week of January, however due to unknown reason, the date has been set for mid-January. The Independent Examination Board (IEB), those in the private institutes, the release date of the results is allegedly set for 19 January 2021.
