The National Senior Certificate (NSC) matric results will officially be released on the 20th of February 2022.

Official reports have confirmed that the Minister of Basic Education will announce the release of the 2021 matric results on the 20th of January after Pretoria High Court ruled that the exam results are a 'matter of public interest'. 

Grade 12 students can access their online results on the 21st of January 2022 online or via SMS, USSD, newspapers or at their examination centres. 

Make sure you have your 13 digits matric exam number at hand when checking your results.
