Matric results will no longer be published on any public and media

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).

In a statement, the department said that publishing personal information online would be a contravention of the Act.

It confirmed that matric results are still scheduled to release on 21 January 2022 and that results would still be available from schools.

Historically, the matric results have been made widely available with students identified through their ID numbers.

“In order to comply with the provisions of the POPIA, the usual practice of publishing the National Senior Certificate (NSC) results on public platforms (media platforms) will not occur for 2021,” it said.

As was also the practice in previous years, all learners will be required to obtain their statement of results from the schools they attend only. That means even SMSs will not work as a way of getting results early.
