The Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture has announced that it will release the Grade 10 and 12 higher level full-time and part-time results on Thursday, December 17, following a speedy conclusion to the marking and processing of the examination data.
This year 48 989 candidates, comprising 37 457 full-time and 11 532 part-time candidates, were registered for the junior secondary certificate (Grade 10) examination at 1 674 schools and 216 part-time tuition centres.
The number of Grade 10 full-time candidates and part-time candidates increased by 2 643 (5.7%), compared to exam data for the corresponding period in 2014.
Spokesperson of the ministry of education Johanna Absalom said the number of markers who were involved this year in the marking of Grade 10 answer scripts was 1 914. She said 13 172 of the 61 159 candidates (full-time and part-time combined) entered for one or more Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate higher level subjects.
The number of higher level candidates increased by 1 093 (8.9 percent) compared to last year. In total 240 markers were involved in the marking of the Grade 12 higher level subjects.
Absalom said the Grade 12 ordinary level results would be released no later than January 15 next year.
“Tremendous progress had been made by the directorate of National Examinations and Assessment to bring the release of the Grade 12 ordinary level as near as possible to the Grade 10 and Grade 12 higher level results,” she noted.
The results will be available on the website of the examination directorate (www.dnea.gov.na). The results can also be accessed by sending a text message with the title of the examination (for example, JSC), followed by the surname and first name of the candidate.
Such request should be sent to any of the following numbers: 2929, 99099 or 55755. In response a candidate’s surname, name and results will be displayed on the screen of their mobile phones.
The website (www.dnea.gov.na) will be updated with the exam results by Thursday, December 17, as from 00h15.
The ministry reminded all candidates, who sat for the 2015 national examinations, to have their candidate numbers ready in order to access their results. Meanwhile, regional offices will during office hours supply the results from the broadsheets to candidates and relatives, who personally visit their offices or phone them.
