IEB 2020 Matric Results Released

The 2020 IEB Matric Results have been released. The IEB averaged a total of 98.07% for their matric finals. 

Although the pass rate for 2020 was lower than in 2019, the IEB matriculants were still able to stay within the same 98 percentile range. This is an incredible achievement for the IEB with all the school days that were missed due to COVID-19. 

The pandemic and fewer school days have not seemed to make much of an impact on the IEB matric results of 2020. Whilst this is the lowest that we have seen the IEB matric results for some time, the IEB pass rate has not dropped below 98% for over 10 years.  

  • 88.42% of IEB matrics from the year 2020 achieved Bachelor’s Degree passes: This is slightly lower than the 89.51% of BD passes in 2019.
  • 8.14% of the 2020 IEB matrics achieved a diploma pass. In 2019, the number of diploma passes were lower at 7.91%. 
  • 1.51% of the IEB class of 2020 achieved higher certificate passes. 1.4% of the IEB matrics of 2019 received a higher certificate pass.
