The Education Department was in discussions about delaying the release of matric results in future.

They said matriculants across the country should receive their final exam results on time but the department said education officials were often under unreasonable pressure after matrics had written their exams.

The department’s Lunga Ngqengelele said some learners did not receive their exam results on time.

Ngqengelele said this situation could be avoided in the future.

“It requires a detailed look in terms of the correction of the papers and the release of the results so we are thinking having more time in terms of doing that, we guarantee learners and South Africans credible results."
