SINGAPORE - About 93.1 per cent of the 13,582 students who took last year's GCE A-level examination achieved at least three H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry.

This is the highest pass rate since the A-level curriculum was revised about a decade ago. The results were better than the previous highest pass rate, which was set last year. Then, 91.4 per cent of the 14,185 students who sat for the exam in 2014 achieved at least three H2 passes.

Acting Education Minister (Schools) Ng Chee Meng posted a note of encouragement to students on his Facebook page on Thursday night(March 3), wishing them the best of luck.

He added: "Continue to work hard and chase your dreams!"

Students went back to their schools at 2.30pm on Friday to collect their result slips.

Private candidates will receive their results by post. Those who have SingPass accounts can use it to obtain their results online via the internet Examination Results Release System (iERRS).

This is at the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board's website at www.seab.gov.sg, where the results were made available from 2.30pm on Friday.
