For many school leavers, the first big milestone in your adult life will be receiving the fruits of your hard work throughout your school career- your Matric results. This can be a very stressful and fraught time for young adults, but remember that poor performance doesn’t mean the end of all your educational options, just a rethink of what you can do with your results. Today we’ve assembled this handy guide to Matric Results 2023 to help you ensure you can easily access your results, as well as some tips to guide you through the wait time.
When Matric Result Will Be Announced in 2023
Matric results for 2023 were announced on the 20th of January, 2023. They will always be released towards the end of the January month following the year in which you wrote your examinations. You can use the Department of Basic Education’s website to track the exact dates for your year. 2024 it will be on the 23rd of February, 2024.
How To Find Online Matric Results 2023/2024
The easiest way to access your Matric results for 2023/2024 online is via the Department of Education website for matric results. All you need to do is enter your examination number, and you will have immediate access to your results.

You can also use the MatricsMate app, ask at your place of learning, or, for Gauteng learners, use the GPG Matrics app. We’ve outlined 2 ways to get your results via your mobile phone below, too.
Can I Check My Matric Results Online With My ID Number?
You can check your Matric results online via the Department of Education website. However, you won’t use your ID number but rather your Matric examination number, which you received when you wrote your final exams. Luckily, it’s a super-simple portal to use and will give you immediate access to your matric results once they are released.
What To Do While Waiting for Matric Results?
Waiting for your matric results can be a scary time. After all, the future of your education hinges on your performance! Luckily, you don’t have to sit on your hands until you have your results.
Start off by making certain you understand how the Matric Pass Levels work and what the one you receive will mean for your educational future. You should have a good idea of the general level of results you expect from your Matric pass based on your prior academic performance. This will determine the institutions for further learning you can apply for.
Also, take some time to have a good think about your adult future. What careers and career paths are you hoping to open up? What courses of study interest you, and what institutions offer them? Gather together the information needed on requirements for each course. Now is also the time to begin your application process.
While you can wait for your results to be finalized, this will reduce the application time you have open to you, and you will be doing it when everyone else is doing the same, leading to delays and frustration. Most institutions will consider a provisional application based on your academic performance to date, which allows you to start the process earlier. This is especially smart if you will need bursaries or funding sources for your tertiary education, as you can also begin to apply for them.
But life isn’t just about exam results. You should also be spending this time exploring your life goals and the soft and hard skills you have to support them. Try journaling or mind-mapping a path for your future career and education, so you can start planning your adult life. Remember that some sources of education are still open to you even without a matric, so you are never without options- it just needs careful planning and solid goal setting on your side.
