MINISTRY of Education executive director, Sanet Steenkamp has said grade 12 results will be out early February although the government will not use the conventional announcement through the newspaper printouts to save learners from mental stress.

Speaking to Confidente this week Steenkamp said the results will be released through a short message service and online.
