Matric Results Will No Longer Be Published In Newspapers Or Online

Jan 12, 2022

By Umamah Bakharia

The anticipation for matric results is looming, however the days where you could look up the results online or in a newspaper is in the past.

The Department of Basic Education has announced that matric exam results will no longer be published on media platforms, in line with the recently introduced Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA).

It added that this was done to respect the right to privacy to protect against unlawful collection, retention, dissemination and use of personal information.

Learners will only be allowed to collect their results from the school that they attend.

This decision has been welcomed by many especially those who believe this is a win for the mental health of matric pupils.

Provincial education spokesperson Millicent Merton said that the overall 2021 NSC exams proceeded without major disruptions and as per the National NSC Exam Management Plan and currently the WCED is on track to release results to the NSC November 2021 with ministerial announcements taking place on the 20 January and release of the candidate’s results on 21 January 2022 as per the National Management Plan.
