Exam results out on 21 December

09 December 2016 | Education

The Grade 10 and 12 higher level examinations results for full-time and part-time candidates will be released on Wednesday, 21 December.

According to the announcement issued by the education ministry yesterday the results for the Grade 12 ordinary level will be released no later than 13 January next year.

This represents a delay of roughly two weeks and while this was as a result of the teachers’ strike at the start of the final 2016 examinations, the ministry said it does not want to shift the blame.

According to the ministry’s permanent secretary Sanet Steenkamp only two subjects including mathematics were really affected by the teachers’ strike that lasted two days.

It also stipulates that 38 277 candidates sat for Grade 10 full-time exams while 14 743 candidates of the 65 863 Grade 12 candidates (full-time and part-time combined) wrote one or more NSSC Higher Level subjects.

“Tremendous progress had been made by the directorate of national examinations and assessments to bring the release of the Grade 12 ordinary level as near as possible to the Grade 10 and higher level results,” the statement read.

The results will be available on the website of the Directorate National Examinations and Assessment at www.dnea.gov.na, the website of the Ministry of Education www.moe.gov.na and will also be accessible via an SMS service.

Candidates who wish to access their results via an SMS must send a message with the examination name, followed by their surname and first name to any of the following numbers, 2929, 99099 or 55755.

Both the website and SMS service will become active on Wednesday, 21 December just after midnight.

Candidates are further urged to have their candidate numbers nearby in order to be able to access their results.

Meanwhile regional offices will be able to assist by supplying the results from the broadsheets to candidates and relatives who personally visit or phone the offices.
