The Department of Basic Education and IEB are also offering SMS services at a cost of R3 per SMS.

The IEB website will also have the results from midnight, January 7. The Department of Basic Education's website will publish the results on January 8.

Both websites will probably be very busy so there might be delays.

If the results are not what you expected, the date for the supplementary exams has been moved to May and June, instead of the previous February and March dates to give you more time to prepare. And remember, as the SA Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) writes: no exam is worth your life. If you need to speak to somebody, call a SADAG counsellor toll-free on 0800 21 22 23 or 0800 12 13 14, or SMS 31393.
