Matrics can win

2017-11-29 06:00

Matrics should keep in mind that Volksblad, mother publication of Express Northern Cape, will publish its yearly insert with the results of the matric examination on Friday, 5 January 2018.

In line with a decision made by the Department of Education, no names are published, only examination numbers.

The results are, how­ever, published according to school and these will appear in alphabetical order.

Readers are urged to confirm the examination number of those matrics whose results they would like to check beforehand, so they can share in the celebration of the learners’ success.

Matrics can win a share of R10 000 in prize money as part of an SMS competition.

Ensure that you get your copy of the insert on Friday, 5 January 2018, look for your examination number and send an SMS to 45527.

Begin the SMS with the word “matriek”, followed by your name and surname, your examination number and the page number on which your examination number appears.

You have from 06:00 until midnight on 5 January to send this SMS.

You could be one of the ten lucky matrics to each win R1 000. An SMS costs R1,50.

By sending an SMS, you give Volksblad permission under the law to contact you for promotion purposes. Volksblad will contact the winners.
