Nervous about receiving your teen's matric results? You can get easy access to them via a number of different options:
Schools will post results early. (Call first to make sure they’re there). This is the most fun as classmates can gather round and commiserate or celebrate together.
The results will be published in all major national newspapers as always.
Send a SMS
All your teen has to do is register via SMS SABC Education service.
Students can register by texting their ID number and exam number to the SMS number 35658. Messages cost R3.
Students are allowed to register until 31 January 2014. (This service is available to the Department of Basic Education students only.)
Make a call
If students were not able to pre-register they will also be able to
call 082 152 on the day the results are released, select option 6, punch
in their ID and exam numbers and the results will be relayed.
The Department of Basic Education's website has all the results – but remember that your teen will need their exam number. Bear in mind that website traffic will be high, so expect delayed response times.
