Matric Results Release 2020
The matric exams are scheduled to end on December 15, followed by a 2-month wait for the final results to be published on February 23, 2021. Usually the final matric results are released early in January so that results can be published before the start of another university sessions.But we all had a very long 2020 even matric collage. Due to the complications caused by novel COVID-19, the examination period for the matric finals failed and be carried as scheduled and was pushed later into December. Due to that the matric results release date was pushed to 23rd of February 2021.
Also another reason that result into shift in the release date as reported by matric collage is large number of student who are sitting for their final examination in December. Over 1 million students are writing their exams and there are simply too many papers to be marked by early January.
