IEB matric exam results for 2023
IEB matric results 2023, [18 Jan 2024): The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) attained an overall pass rate of 98.46% in the 2023 National Senior Certificate (NSC) examinations. The pass rate is slightly higher than the 2022 NSC pass rate of 98.42%. All candidates who passed the IEB 2023 NSC examination achieved a pass that grants access to tertiary study at one of the three levels:
- 88.59% of the cohort achieved entry to degree study, compared to 89.32% in 2022.
- 8.31% qualified for entry to diploma study, compared to 7.52% in 2022.
- 1.57% achieved entry for study at the Higher Certificate level, same as the 1.57% in 2022.
13 967 full-time and 1213 part-time candidates, a total of 15 180 wrote the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) NSC examinations in October and November 2023 at 275 examination centres. This is more than the 12 580 full-time candidates and 945 part-time candidates, a total of 13 525 in 2022.
The significant increase of 1 655 results from the 17 new schools, comprising a total of 960 candidates, that wrote the IEB for the first time in 2023. The 17 comprised of 12 brick and mortar schools and 5 online providers.
The IEB is very pleased to announce that the 2023 NSC examination session was conducted free of any irregularity that may have undermined the integrity of this examination.
Confidence Digole, CEO of the IEB says that along the learners’ 5-year journey, there may have been interruptions and challenges – notably the significant disruption to teaching and learning brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic – but for the most part we do believe that this cohort were well placed to succeed in the 2023 NSC examination session. The impressive performance of the class of 2023 amid these challenges reflects the dedication and tenacity of both learners and the entire teaching community.
“What however is not often talked about, is the tremendous pressure brought to bear on learners by society. Schools’ experience with young people points to the escalating mental health issues, which is perhaps one of the greatest challenges our youngsters face and does impact their ability to perform at their peak in a high stakes examination.
“Mental wellbeing is directly linked to the stress society is placing on our young people to perform, to get top results and secure spots in top tertiary institutions. The competition is huge, and this is a global issue, not just unique to the South African context. Research also points to a correlation between a learner’s independence and their overall wellbeing,” says Dikgole.
“Schools are faced with a challenge to grow and nurture confident, courageous, and independent young people – this is directly linked to wellbeing and ultimately their ability to achieve and succeed. This is a journey together with parents, who in the current times have become either not involved or far too protective of their children, sadly to the detriment of their own wellbeing and success. Most of all, we need learners to know that the world of education does not end after Matric, on the contrary, it is only the start of a myriad of doors and opportunities. There are many educational routes – not all of them necessarily need to lead to a university degree – that releases their talents and their enthusiasm to be the very best they can in a field that has captivated their interest. We need to remove this pass-rate obsessed lens of competition, so we – and they – can start to see the success of their achievement with different eyes,” concludes Dikgole.
In line with its inclusive approach to assessment and examinations, the IEB provided Accommodations and Adapted Papers for learners who required these. Accommodations and Adaptations aim to ensure equitable access to the examination content while maintaining the integrity and fairness of the NSC examinations. This practice is standard internationally, reflecting a commitment to providing equal opportunities for all learners to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, regardless of their individual circumstances. It aligns with the principles of inclusive education and supports a more comprehensive and equitable approach to assessment on a global scale.
Accommodations were approved for 10.42% of candidates, totalling 1 583 out of 15 185 candidates, for the 2023 NSC Examination session.
Question papers were adapted as follows:
a) Hearing Impairment: Sixteen subjects underwent adaptations for five candidates with hearing impairment. These adaptations included techniques such as bolding, underlining, use of white space, and embedded glossary.
Visual Impairment: Adaptations were made for two candidates with visual impairment in nine subjects. Adaptations involved techniques such as replacing an image/picture/diagram with a written description, supplementing an image/picture/diagram with a written description, and removing an unnecessary image/picture/diagram.
C) Brailed Papers for Visual Impairment: Six subjects were transcribed into Braille, for a candidate with visual impairment. Physical Impairment: An adaptation was implemented for Engineering Graphics and Design (Paper 1 & Paper 2) for one candidate with physical impairment, specifically cerebral palsy.
The IEB monitored the writing of the 2023 NSC examinations at all the 275 examination venues through real-time electronic video monitoring systems. Physical monitoring was also conducted at 114 examination centres. The purpose of monitoring the writing of the examinations is to ensure integrity and security of the examination process, and it also allows for the identification and resolution of any irregularities that could compromise the validity of the examination results.
The 2023 IEB NSC examinations were quality assured by Umalusi, the Quality Assurance Council for the General and Further Education and Training. The quality assurance entailed moderation of question papers, monitoring of the writing of the examinations, verification of marking, standardisation of marks. The aim of quality assurance conducted by Umalusi on the IEB examinations is to ensure the credibility, fairness, and consistency of the assessment processes and outcomes. By reviewing and accrediting the IEB assessments and examinations, Umalusi ensures that the examinations meet national standards and uphold the integrity of the education system.
