All provinces seemed to have improved in the 2023 matric results

There were over 1000 matric pupils who could not write maths literacy in Witbank as a result of a service delivery protest.

This was announced by the director-general of basic education, Mweli Mathanzima, on Thursday while delivering a technical briefing where he unpacked the 2023 matric results ahead of the matric results announcement.

Mathanzima said the class of 2023 was probably the worst-affected cohort in relation to the effects of Covid-19 and was subjected to the challenges of load shedding and service delivery protest disruptions.

“All these challenges have indicated that this is the strongest cohort from the last three years. The result of the class of 2023 is a strong signal of recovery and renewal,” Mathanzima said.

He mentioned all provinces seemed to have improved and that no positions were permanent for any provinces or districts, adding:

There is a general improvement in the areas of access, redress, equity, efficiency, quality and inclusivity. Despite the challenges, the class of 2022 has demonstrated its resilience and resolve to overcome the odds. This is an indication that the schooling system is maturing and is developing a capability to deal with unexpected challenges. The system has shown significant improvements across all areas.


He said the department offered the fourth examination in sign language to 210 pupils, of whom 77% achieved the national senior certificate (NSC).

“A total of 1092 pupils with special needs wrote the NSC exams and 79% attained the NSC. About 439 pupils with special needs attained admission to bachelor studies, 264 achieved admissions to diploma studies and 108 achieved admissions to higher certificate studies.”

Mweli added 43.4% of the progressed pupils who wrote all seven subjects met the requirements of the NSC and got distinctions in 248 subjects.

He said there were 423 478 girls compared to 329 523 boys who wrote the NSC exams and 326 894 girls compared to 253 661 boys who passed the 2023 NSC exams.

“The girls also achieved 65.0% of the distinctions, which included distinctions in critical subjects, such as accounting, business studies, economics, mathematics and physical science.”

He said the number of distinctions for the class of 2023 went up from 211 745 to 218 770 in 2023.
