The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology has released the 2016 Form One Selection and Junior Certificate of Education Examination results.
In a press statement signed by Secretary for Education, Science and Technology, Charles Msosa, out of 255,087 candidates who sat for this year’s Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education Examinations (PSLCE), 197,222 candidates have qualified for the award of the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education representing a 77.3 percent pass rate.
The statement further said that out of 197,222 internal candidates who passed the examinations, 69,587 candidates have been selected to various public secondary schools, representing a 35.28 percent selection rate.
And out of 133,113 candidates who sat for this year’s Junior Certificate of Education (JCE) Examinations, 103,447 candidates have qualified for the award of the JCE representing a 77.71 percent pass rate.
The ministry says results for the examinations have been made available in all Education Division Offices, District Education Offices and in all Public and Grant-Aided Secondary Schools.
“All queries about the JCE results must be channelled to MANEB through the head teachers at schools where candidates wrote their examinations. MANEB will not entertain any query about the results made directly to the Board by candidates or any other individual,” reads the statement adding that all officially channelled queries should reach MANEB by October 14 2016.
All students who have been selected to start Form 1 and those who have passed their JCE have since been requested to report for school by September 11 2016 for boarding scholars, and September 12 for all day scholars.
