High Court orders Basic Education to publish matric results

The Department Basic Education has been ordered by the Pretoria High Court to publish the matric results on all public platforms.

This comes after Afriforum sought to review the decision on an urgent basis. Part of the order states that the publication of results should not reflect first names and surnames of the learners. This means that the usual process of using the unique exam number remains.

Judge Anthony Millar made this ruling saying that not everyone has access to the internet. Secondly, there are some who are no longer living in the area where their high school is based. This will make it impossible to access their results in time to start their application process at tertiary institutions.

The department released a media statement in view of the court ruling:
