Matric students have until January 6 to register to receive their results on their mobile phones in the new year.
The release date for matric results has provisionally been set as January 7, 2014 and students who register via their mobile phones will receive an sms on that date. The sms line will remain open until January 31, 2014.
SABC Education is providing the sms service where the youth can register for their results by sending their ID number and exam number to the SMS number 35658; SMSs cost R3.
The mobile service is available to the Department of Basic Education students only; SABC Education is in negotiations to include Independent Education Body students in the future.
In November, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga, said the millions of rands invested into the security around the matric exams had paid off, with the smooth running of the examinations.
