The public broadcaster in partnership with the Department of Basic Education calls on matriculants to register on the SABC’s 2019 matric results service in order to get their final examination results.

At least 790 405 matric learners sat for the 2019 examinations.

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga is expected to announce the results on the 07 January 2020 and SABC Education will release the matric results to all learners across all nine provinces who registered on its database on the morning of 08 January 2020.

Acting SABC Spokesperson Mmoni Seapolelo says all Grade 12 learners are eligible to use the SABC’s 2019 matric results service from 05 December 2019 until 31 January 2020.

“Learners are advised to register on one of SABC Education matric results mobile services to access their results and should use their 13 digits ID number and exam number to register on the platform of their choice to access their results.
