SA#MatricExam: 'Results will be published'
─── 10:27 Tue, 18 Jan 2022
Matric results will be published on Thursday. Judge Anthony Millar has granted the urgent application brought by AfriForum, Maroela Media, and a matriculant.
In the application, Anlé Spies said she would not be able to return to her high school in Pretoria to collect her results before starting her first year at the University of the Free State.
The Department of Basic Education says it scrapped the results' public release to comply with the Protection of Personal Information or Popi Act.
The order says the publication of results may not reflect the names of pupils.
Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has also been ordered to pay the court application costs.
