The release of the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 2019 results took place on 8 December 2020.
The Grade 5 test administration was conducted in 291 schools with 11 891 learners in October 2018. The Grade 9 data collection took place in September 2019. We boosted the number of schools in Gauteng and the Western Cape from 30 to 150, to provide more robust estimates. Data collection occurred in 519 schools with 20 829 learners across the country. We will report on national statistics. In addition, Gauteng and Western Cape, will appear as benchmarking provinces in the international report and we will report on their statistics separately as well.
