21 291 pass Grade 10 as Oshikoto tops again

20 December 2016 | Education

The official Grade 10 examination results for 2016 released today indicate that only 21 291 pupils out of 38 240 candidates have qualified for admission to Grade 11.
This represents a pass rate of 55.7% compared to 54.2% achieved in 2015. "The number of candidates qualifying for admission to Grade 11 in 2017 might increase to approximately 24 291 because part-time candidates build up subject credits over a couple of years and normally meet the admission requirement to Grade 11 only after a number of years," the minister of education Katrina Hanse-Himarwa stated. "The 2016 results for Grades 10 and 12 full-time and part-time show much improvement in performance when compared to the 2015 results."

Oshikoto tops again
Northern schools have yet again managed to outperform schools south of the red line with Oshikoto, Oshana and Omusati and Ohangwena enjoying the top national rankings. Kavango East also retained its fifth position, while Zambezi improved two places to finish at number 6.
