2012 'O' Levels...
Thursday, Jan 10, 2013
SINGAPORE - The Education Ministry released the GCE O level results on Thursday to a total of 37,267 students. 99.8 per cent had passed at least one O-level subject, and 81.3 per cent scored five or more passes.
This is similar to the previous O level results where 81.9 per cent scored four or more passes, 95.3 per cent had at least three O-level passes and 99.9 per cent passed at least one O-level subject.
Private school candidates who sat for last year's GCE O levels fared better than the previous batch of O-level students.
Out of 3,113 private candidates, 2,803 students, or 90 per cent, were awarded certificates today, compared to last year's 89.5 per cent.
90.5 per cent of Sec 4 Normal Academic students who sat for one or more subjects have obtained at least one pass.
These students, who had earlier accepted conditional offers in the Polytechnic Foundation Programme (PFP) or Direct-Entry-Scheme into Polytechnic Programme (DPP) at ITE in December 2012. will have their conditional offers automatically confirmed if they meet the eligibility criteria.
In order not to place too much emphasis on academic results, the Ministry did not name top scorers for the O-levels in a similar way to not naming PSLE and N-level top scorers.
