South Africa’s Matric Pass Rate: 2007 – 2017

The Department of Education has announced the matric pass rate for 2017: 75.1% – 2.6 % points higher than in 2016.

629,155 full-time grade 12’s sat in for the 2017 NSC examinations, while an additional 173,276 part-time learners also wrote. Of these candidates, 534,484 full-time candidates, and 117,223 part-time candidates wrote the exams.

This discrepancy is because of the number of progressed learners (learners which have failed Grade 11 twice) which will write their remaining exams later this year. If these students are excluded, the pass rate rises to 76.5%.
