SINGAPORE — Out of the 24,409 candidates who sat the GCE O-Level Examination last year, 85.2 per cent – or 20,805 – had five or more passes in the subjects they took.

Of the cohort, 99.9 per cent (24,377) of candidates had one or more passes, while 96.5 per cent (23,550) had two or more passes, said the Ministry of Education in a news release on Monday (13 January).

“The performance of students in this cohort is comparable to the performance of the 2018 cohort,” the ministry added.

Students looking to use their results to apply for admissions to junior colleges, polytechnics, the Institute of Technical Education (ITE) or Millennia Institute, can do via the Joint Admissions Exercise that opens at 3pm on Monday and closes at 4pm on Friday.

Those looking for guidance on their education options can approach their teachers or the Education and Career Guidance (ECG) counsellors supporting their schools, said MOE.

They can also log on to the MySkillsFuture portal (https://go.gov.sg/mysfsec) for more information on career options or make an appointment with an ECG counsellor at the MOE ECG Centre @ Grange Road from 6 to 24 January via their e-appointment system (http://bit.ly/moe_ecg).
