Where to Find Old Matric Results

Here is everything you need to know about finding old matric results.

Old Results

If you are looking for older results, the best thing to do is look in the matric result archives. Unfortunately, these archives only go back to 2004 so any results before then will not be listed. 

To find the government archive click here. This website is currently under construction but should be ready for the release of the 2020 matric results in February 2021.  

Lost Matric Certificate

If you are looking for results because you lost your matric certificates, there are ways that you can reapply for a matric certificate without having to find your results. 

All you have to do is apply with the DoBE and follow a few steps that can be found in this article.
