What You Need To Know

The IEB has noted that the effect Covid-19 has had on their examinations and the results will be visible for 2021, but they did not expect any major impacts. The IEB proudly announced that the measures put in place to soften the blow of the pandemic has made the 2021 examinations a smooth and manageable task. 

Here is all of the need to know information regarding the IEB Matric Examinations for 2021:

Important Dates For Your IEB Matric Examination And Results

The Independent Examination Board has confirmed the following dates applicable to the National Senior Certificate Examinations nationally:

  • Start of IEB Examination – 13 September 2021
  • End of IEB Examination – 2 December 2021
  • Umalusi Approval of Results Announcement – 18 January 2022
  • Release of Results – 19 January 2022

Where Will Results Be Announced?

A Spokesperson for the IEB, released the statement by the board in early January 2022 that the board would announce the national results for their examinations on the 19th of January 2022. The location and time of the announcement have yet to be confirmed but it is expected that the announcement will be done on the IEB website as well as other platforms used in the past.

How Will The Results Be Made Public?

In the statement released by the IEB on the 18th of January 2022, the board confirmed that they would keep with tradition and publish the results achieved by the class of 2021 on public media platforms, such as Newspapers. 

This is a clear contrast from the Department of Basic Education’s decision to not release results on these platforms due to possible overstepping of legal regulations set out in the Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA). The DBE announced this on the 11th of January 2022.

The IEB has however stated that only the results of students who expressly provided their consent to the board to publish their results on these platforms will be made public. If a student did not provide their consent to the IEB, their results would not be published and the student in question would have to get their results via one of the other release platforms.

How To Get Your 2021 IEB Examination Results

The following are the methods available to IEB students to get their results once they are released on the 19th of January 2022:

Physical Results Certificate

Students can get their results certificate directly from the school they attended. Once Umalusi has certified the results for IEB students, their certificates will be sent to the schools, after which schools will be able to hand out these certificates. This is expected to only be during April of this year.


Students can access their results after the official announcement of the 2021 results by visiting the IEB website.

SMS Service

If students provided their mobile numbers to the IEB, their results will be automatically sent to them upon release of the results. Students can still register to have their results sent to them via SMS by following these steps:

  • Step 1 – Send an SMS message to 35135
  • Step 2 – This message needs to contain the word ‘Results’ followed by your unique examination number, a space, and then your date of birth (yyyymmdd)
  • Step 3 – Your then will receive a message confirming your registration, and your results will be sent to your number upon release

SMS are charged at R3 per SMS.


In accordance with the IEB statement on the 18th of January 2022, students can find their results in their local Newspapers as approved by the IEB.

How The 2021 IEB Matric Results Were Affected By Covid-19

The IEB announced in early 2021 that due to the Covid-19 pandemic they were not going to have students write the traditional May/June Examinations. This was to ensure that the board had enough time to strategise their approach to the year-end examinations for 2021.

Upon the approval of results by Umalusi, which is expected on the 18th of January 2022, the IEB will announce the National Results obtained by the class of 2021 on the 19th of January 2022.

IEB Matric Results 2020

The IEB 2020 matric results have been released with a pass rate of 98.07%. IEB schools across the country proudly announced their top achievers.
