Minister of Basic Education Angie Motshekga announced that the recently unveiled 2023 matric results affirm the system is stable, providing a foundation for necessary improvements within the department.

In 2022, the national pass rate reached 80.1%. This result was a notable increase from the 76.4% in 2021. Motshekga stressed the importance of system stability, stating, “Having received the initial results, the system is stabilising.”

Expressing her concern, the minister highlighted the potential challenges when a system lacks consistency, emphasising that a stable system allows for identifying weaknesses and areas requiring fortification. This assessment aligns with the ongoing efforts to enhance the overall quality of education in South Africa.


As part of the engagement with the outcomes, Motshekga will have breakfast with the top achievers of the Class of 2023 on Thursday morning before officially releasing the comprehensive examination results. The focus remains on leveraging the stability observed in the system to enact positive changes and further elevate the educational landscape in the country.
