Matric results 2021 mapped: how did your school do?

The class of 2021 had a much harder time than most, having to contend with the pressure of grade 12, two years of a pandemic and, at times, isolation. But as revealed in the matric results 2021, they have emerged with a 76.4% pass rate. The Mail & Guardian has collated the data showing the pass rates of each school. Note all data relates to the NSC exams, not the IEB results.
