The announcement follows reports claiming that Umalusi had asked for an extension from the Education Department to release the final marks.

However, Umalusi has assured that Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will announce 2022’s figures on Thursday.

“The minister will make her announcement on the 19th and learners, as far as the department is concerned, will be able to fetch their results early in the morning on the 20th. There has not been any request for an extension to next week as reported in the media,” says Umalusi’s Biki Lepota.

According to government statistics over 100,000 Grade 12 learners passed matric in 2021 with the percentage claiming to increase for the class of 2022.

Meanwhile, Umalusi CEO, Dr Mafu Rakometsi, said that he is concerned about the growing rate of cheating during examinations.

He added that they are investigating reported cases.
