FINALLY|| If You Are Struggling to Get Your Matric Results Use The Fast Links


With only a few days left until the class of 2021 receives their matriculation results, many people are curious about how they will be able to check their results online because, typically, the school makes them available later in the day and newspapers are extremely expensive on this particular day. No need to be concerned, because nowadays you can check your results using your cellphone by following these simple steps, which just require your identification number and the examination number in question. 

Whenever you have to go over your matriculation results, it is bound to be a difficult experience for you. In the days preceding up to the release of their results, many matriculants went through a similar experience as you, and it is possible that matriculants after you will go through the same or similar experience. Because of this, it is vital to maintain perspective and avoid becoming overwhelmed by the scenario in front of you. Instead, consider yourself fortunate that you were not a matriculant during a time when matriculation results were made public, as you may have been if this had been the situation. 

1. Using a text message as a communication medium 

You can check your matric results even if you don't have a smartphone or internet access if you use the SMS portal. Using this way, you will be able to verify your matric results and receive them almost immediately after they have been announced. Simple procedures must be taken in order to get your findings confirmed through SMS: 

Send your identification number as well as your exam number to 35658. 

Be sure to double-check that both phone numbers contain 13 digits before sending the message. Please keep in mind that there is an R3 registration charge, and that you will receive your matric results on the same day that they are released by the department. 

2. Making use of a website 

Instead, you can check the results on these websites when they become available, which will be updated as soon as they are available:

3. It is based on the Internet. 

To do so, simply follow the steps given below, but bear in mind that you will only be able to obtain your matric results online once they have been made public by the Department of Education (on January 21, 2022). 

Step 1: Navigate to the Department of education website official website. 

To begin, go to the Department of Basic Education's matriculation webpage and fill out the necessary information. This can be accomplished by visiting this website. As a result, you can access the website even if you do not have access to a data connection because it is zero-rated. 

Step 2: Create a new account with your email address. 

In order to receive your examination results, you must first create an account with the website. A new account must be created in which you enter your 13-digit ID number, your 13-digit exam number, first and last name as well as an additional email address and password, as well as your password. You will be prompted to enter this information during the account creation process. 

Upon entering this information, you will be needed to verify your identity before being allowed to access the information you have requested. 

Having made an account, you will be able to access it by entering your email address and password in the appropriate boxes. You will then be able to navigate to the results of your matrices from that point onwards. 


While it's disappointing when your matric results aren't exactly what you expected them to be or what you required them to be, it's not necessarily the worst thing that could happen. It's best not to get too worked up over it. Instead, consider taking a supplementary exam in the middle of the year to help you enhance your National Senior Certificate exam results for the following year. You can still enroll in a university the following year, which gives you extra time to prepare for life at the collegiate level before you graduate.
