If I have failed a subject, will this be shown on my certificate?
If I was absent for a subject, will this be shown on my certificate?
I have sat for the Mother Tongue Language (MTL) written papers during the Mid-Year and Year-End examinations. Which grade will be shown on my result slip and examination certificate?
Your MTL subject grade will be computed based on the better grade which was awarded for Mid-Year and Year-End MTL written examinations, and your grades for your MTL Listening Comprehension and Oral papers. This MTL subject grade will be reflected on your result slip and certificate.
Are the awarded grades given based on certain cut-off marks, or the distribution of candidates with certain marks?
Grading for the national examinations is not based on pre-determined cut-off marks or a pre-determined percentage of candidates for certain grades. Instead, grading takes into consideration various factors such as the paper difficulty and the quality of the candidates’ work, so as to maintain standards.
