As the 2023 version of the Matric Exams came to an end in early December, the class of 2023 have had just over a month to decompress and relax as they prepare to embark on a life outside of schooling.

The break will be shortlived, as the Department of Basic Education announced late last year that the results for the end-year exams will be released nationwide on 18th January 2024, with individual results – subject marks – released on the 19th January.

All results and data will be released countrywide after 16:00 on the 19th.

Matric students looking to enter tertiary education can take advantage of the scholarships, bursaries or internships being offered by myriad tech firms this year – you can find some offers here and here.
