Of the 12,502 candidates who sat for the GCE A-level examinations last year, 1,624 received at least three H2 passes, as well as a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry.
These statistics were released by the Ministry of Education and Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board recently.
Last year’s pass rate was 93 per cent, compared to the 92.6 per cent pass rate achieved by the 2016 cohort.
Meanwhile, chemistry students who had their Paper 3 scripts stolen were mostly happy with awarded grades. The affected students were given grades based on their performance in other parts of the Chemistry exam. They also have the option to resit Paper 3.
In a Facebook post Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong wished candidates well, saying “Whatever your results are, remember that this is just one step in your lifelong learning journey. We are not only defined by result slips or certificates, but by what we achieve in life and what impact we make on those around us.”
