The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) has reported a 98.76% matric pass rate for 2017.

The closing date for the application for re-marking is January 10 and the results from re-marking will be released on February 5. 

The closing date for learners who qualify to enrol for supplementary exams is February 12. 

"The 2017 NSC candidates have done very well and have once again shown that, with a commitment to hard work over their 12 years of schooling, and supported by a dedicated cohort of teachers and parents, they have passed with flying colours. They are ready for the next step in their journey of life-long learning," IEB CEO Anne Oberholzer said in a statement. 

The pass rate for the Department of Basic Education's schools will be announced on Thursday night and results for all provinces, except the Western Cape, will be published on Friday.
