IEB spokesperson Teresa Settas said they had been publishing the NSC results in compliance with the requirements of Popia for years.
Only the results of learners who have opted in and have provided express permission for their results to be published on media platforms are released by the IEB.
In the previous year, IEB schools got a matric pass rate of just over 98%, marking ‘excellent performance’ in a tough year, even though the impact of Covid-19 on the schooling population saw several learners withdraw from the year and postpone completion of Grade 12 until 2021.
