SABC Education is again calling all South African matric students to register and receive their matric results through SMS or USSD lines. This service was created for matric students to receive results via SMS and USSD as soon as results are made available to the general public. The service is in partnership with the Department of Basic Education (DBE).
In 2016, more than +-300 000 students received results via the SABC Education Matric Results SMS and USSD services. The Matric Results SMS and USSD lines will open for matric students from the 20th of December 2017 until 31 January 2018.
Learners will register to get results via SMS and USSD:
NB: The Department of Basic Education will announce the National Senior Certificate Examination on 04 January 2018. Once this has been done, students that are registered within SABC Education matric results database will receive their results on 05 January 2018.
SABC Education will continue to create awareness through TV and Radio promos to alert matric students on the use of SMS and USSD support services. SABC Education is again running a call-centre to address issues relating to registration process, registration confirmation and queries on results received.
Should the learners have queries, they can contact our call centre on 011 504 0008, Monday to Friday from 8am to 5pm. However, on the day of the release, the call center will operate from 6am to 5pm.
SABC Education in partnership with the Department of Basic Education celebrates the launch of the Matric Results campaign to “Enriching Minds, Enriching Lives”. Former president Nelson Mandela once said that “Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.”
