The IEB produces consistent, reliable results in the Grade 12 National Senior Certificate:

  • Average pass rate is between 97% and 98%
  • Pass with entry to degree study, between 78% and 80%


A study carried out at the university of Cape Town in 2008 noted that:

  • 25% of first degree graduates at UCT in 2007 came from IEB schools
  • On average over a 3 year period, the throughput rate of learners from IEB schools was 98%
