Matriculants Celebrate Countrywide As They Receive Their Results

Festivities began around the country after midnight for those students who aced their final exams.


Successful students from Pretoria to Polokwane painted South Africa pink overnight as the annual matric results were released. Many turned to social media to share the celebrations with family, friends and even newspaper salespeople!

These are a few unforgettable moments. Well done class of 2018!

Popping bottles!

These parents are through the roof with joy.

Proud moment #MatricResults

Please don't disturb these guys, they've been up all night!

And while the country danced, this guy wasn't having it. At all.
