Exam results drop, slightly

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 14, 2007

The Education Ministry’s latest report card for the ethnic groups showed Malay performance slipping slightly at the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), and at the GCE O and A levels.

Chinese and Indian students showed improvement at the PSLE and O levels, but both groups also dropped in performance at the A levels.

The good news in the data released on Friday is that children of all races did well overall at all the major examinations.

In the PSLE, over 95 per cent passed. At the O levels, over 95 per cent obtained at least three O-level passes and over 80 per cent obtained at least five.

And at the A levels, over 90 per cent obtained at least two A levels and two AO levels.

Across the board, Chinese students kept up their record of performing best at all three levels, their results outstripping the national average.

Malay students shone in mother tongue, outperforming Chinese and Indians at all three exams as in previous years. (story)
