Will Matric Exam Results 2023 Be Published In Newspapers?
Yes, Matric results will be published in newspapers, as they are every year. Newspapers typically sell out quickly, so you should buy them as soon as they are published.

Will My Name Be Published In The Newspaper?
No, your name will not be published in the newspaper. In fact, your personal information will be safeguarded at all times. The (POPI) Protection of Personal Information Act, also known as the POPIA Act, is to blame for this.
Your examination number will be the only thing that appears in the newspaper. This number is only given to you (Matric student) prior to the final exam. You will be the only person who has access to your examination number, which no one else will.
The DBE decided not to post some matric results (Department of Basic Education)
The DBE has released new information regarding the publication of Matric results (Department of Basic Education).
The Department of Basic Education has decided to publish only a subset of Matric results. This means you can now choose whether or not to have your results published in the newspaper.
Forms were distributed to the class of 2022, requesting their permission to publish their results online and in newspapers.
Here is what Education spokesperson Elijah Mhlanga has to say:
“We received a large number of responses, which we are currently processing, and that is why we are working throughout December to ensure that everything is completed by the time the Minister releases the results on January 19th, and this is the first time it is happening, so there is a lot of work to be done.”
He also states that if Matric students do not provide written permission, the department will not publish their results.
