Here’s how to access your Matric Results

Umalusi has approved the release of the 2023 Matric results tomorrow and there are several ways candidates can receive their results.

Learners can access their results (or register to receive them) in the following ways:

  • Learners can get their results directly from the schools or institutions where they took the exams. These results may only be accessible after 12:00 PM on the release day.
  • Learners can also access their results directly by logging onto the Department of Basic Education’s website here. Before receiving confirmation of their registration, candidates will need to complete a two-step verification process. They must provide their 13-digit ID number and Exam Number to register. The DBE website can be accessed without data charges, meaning it can be accessed regardless of whether the user has data or not.
  • A number of online news websites will publish the results – including News24’s Matric Results page or the Sowetan’s page.
  • To receive their 2022 matric results, learners can text their exam number to 45856. The system will verify their exam number and then send them their results. Each SMS costs R1.50, and free SMSes cannot be used.
  • Learners can receive their matric results by using the USSD code *120*45856# and entering their exam number to register. The learner’s matric results will then be sent to their phone once they are available. The USSD service will be charged R1.50 per minute.
  • Download the MatricsMate App for free from Google Play and Apple App Stores.
  • Most of South Africa’s major daily newspapers will publish the matric results on 20 January 2023.

Good luck everyone!
