How to get matric results via sms

The matric results will be announced by the Department of Education on 4 January, with learners’ individual results set to be released on the morning of 5 January.

One of the ways students can get their marks is by using the SABC Education SMS and USSD services.

SMS service

Learners can send their ID number and exam number via SMS to 35658.

Both numbers must have 13 digits to be accepted. SMS messages are charged at R1 per SMS.

USSD service

Learners can dial *120*35658# and put in their ID number and exam number to register. Once the results are available, users will get their results per subject.

2. School 

Schools will post results early. (Call first to make sure they’re there). This is the most fun as classmates can gather round and commiserate or celebrate together.

3. Newspapers
