Matric Results 2008 Almost There

Finally after a long wait we are extremely close to the release of Matric Results 2008. It's been quite a long month for many Matric students like myself but the wait is almost over. There are plenty of ways to get your matric results online. There are new SMS services which offer the ability to receive your results the moment they are released.

Personally, I think that the best and safest way is to wait for the results in the newspaper. That way you won't be let down and you can almost be certain that they are correct as they stand in the paper because they go through intense checking to make sure that they are all correct. From what I've seen in the media last week, it appears that everything is going according to plan and the Matric results 2008 will be at any moment.

Many students will go out to the printing press and wait for the papers to be released. I've seen adverts on TV and heard plenty of advertisements on the radio about SMS matric results services, so far I haven't subscribed to one, so I'm not sure how the whole scene works, but I'm sure they will be reliable when the Matric results 2008 are finally released.

Matric Results Released Soon

The long wait is almost over, it's just a matter of time now before the Matric results will be released. Apparently all the marking has been done, and we are now just waiting for the official announcement about when the results will be availible to the public.

I've been following the media lately aswell, and I've noticed that there have not been as many incidents this year as there have been in the past. I think this is a great thing, and it means the Matric results this year are going to be very interesting. Many students will be applying to universities across the country and when their matric results are released, which should be very soon - they will be a clear indication of whether they will be able to study in the field of their choice.

The exam period went by extremely fast and I've seen plenty of advertising recently in South Africa about how to get hold of your matric results. The most popular method at the moment seems to be via your mobile phone. Many services also include getting your matric results online. Basically you have to send an SMS with your personal information, and exam number. The night that the results are released, they will SMS you back and you will have your matric result.

So it's nothing but nerves of steel that is guiding South African students through this time, and we will only know if we can celebrate once they have finally been released. From what I've seen in the past this is the standard procedure that happens every year, so I don't think it's going to be any different for this years matric results.

Matric Results 3 More Days of School

Well I guess anxious can be the only word to describe the feeling right now. Most schools just have 3 more days left and then it's holidays. The one thing that is on everyone's minds is the Matric Results. Many matric pupils will be going on vacation as we head to December, this is probably the best way to deal with the stress.

The exam period was a very difficult time for all, and once everyone gets their own result, I'm sure there will be plenty of people who will feel much better. Another way to describe what many are going through is nervousness, this is because it's very difficult to take your mind off the calendar.

Everything sounds like it went well, and there are many people who have registered to receive their results via sms, but we will see what happens as the time goes by. For now there is 3 more days of school, and then we'll have to wait another few weeks until we get our final matric results.

Final Week of Exams

It is now the final week for Matrics. Most matric pupils are basically finished their exams and are now eagerly waiting for results. The interesting thing is that so far this year everything seems to have happened quite swiftly.

As far as the media is concerned, there have not been any major reports about something going wrong during the examination period and this probably goes all the way down through the brilliant system which has been put into place. Now the attention moves away from the matric students who were writing the exams, and to the final matric results.

During the next few weeks papers will be marked and it's just a matter of time before the results will be released, the most reliable resource for results is to wait until a final report has been issued which confirms results of a learner, many people have rebelled against the sending of results through SMS, which may be inaccurate, either way many matric students are now final week of school and will be waiting for the results.

Matric Results: The Wait Begins

Well today I decided to start this site, basically I'm like the thousands of others out there now, and waiting for the Matric results to come out at the end of the year.

The exams went faster than anyone could have imagined, and it's sad to see 12 years of life coming to such an abrupt end. The best part is now that all the work has been done, and the only thing that remains is the results. Plenty of matrics wrote this year, and I think everything went smoothly.

The official results only come out towards the end of the year, and many SMS services are already making people sign up so that they can send their results when the information is available. Some people are going to get their results online. The way I see it, is that I'm going to be waiting until the official ones get released, but it's a long wait. A good thing to look forward to, is that in less than 2 years time the 2010 world cup will be here, and I can't wait to get hold of some tickets. So for now I'm waiting, but it won't be long until the Matric results are finally released.
