IEB Matric Results 2018: 98.9% Pass Rate


It’s official! A total of 98.92% of pupils passed the 2018 IEB national senior certificate exams. This is an increase from 98.76% the previous year.

A total of 11 514 full-time pupils and 858 part-time pupils put pen to paper for the final examinations with 90.65% having qualified for entry to study a degree, up from 88.5% the previous year. This could be attributed to the removal of the list of designated subjects. Previously, students had to get 50% or more in a minimum of four designated subjects. In 2018, this was changed and pupils could obtain 50% in any four or more subjects, except for Life Orientation.
