JOHANNESBURG - Matric results will be published on Thursday.

The Department of Basic Education says it scrapped the results' public release, to comply with the Protection of Personal Information Act.

The order says the publication of results may not reflect the names of pupils.

Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has also been ordered to pay the court application costs.
