Matric Pass Rate 2023 South Africa

Quality assurance body Umalusi reported earlier this week that 919,532 students wrote the 2023 National Senior Certificate exams this year.

Of these, 898,520 were registered public schools falling under the Department of Basic Education. Around 79.8% (717,377) candidates were full-time. The class of 2023 is one of the matric groups that were impacted by the Covid–19 pandemic, starting their grade 10 year in 2021.

Although South Africa’s most stringent lockdown measures were lifted by the end of 2021, it only exited its state of disaster in March 2022. Umalusi reported this week that some irregularities were detected during writing and marking, but these were not systemic and did not compromise the overall credibility and integrity of the exams.

Where irregularities were found, Umalusi instructed the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to block the results of those candidates pending an investigation.
