The Independent Examinations Board (IEB) results were released at midnight of the 29th December 2015. The class of 2015 achieved an impressive 98,3 percent pass rate.
Over 10 200 full-time and 563 part-time candidates from 200 schools across Southern Africa wrote the 2015 IEB examinations in October and November 2015.
