In spite of the political instability plaguing the nation, a record high of GPA 5 results has been achieved by Junior School Certificate and Junior Dakhil Certificate Candidates this year.
A record pass rate was also achieved. Amid the gloom and doom faced by so many sectors due to the political crisis, it is a silver lining that our students are doing well.
The record high may have been influenced by the board deciding to include the score of the fourth or optional subject in the total marks. Nevertheless, given that our students have had to deal with serious uncertainty and exams being rescheduled at short notice, the dedication they have demonstrated with these results deserves praise.
A record 89.94% of candidates passed the examination this year, while 172,208 students earned a GPA 5. This is a massive increase from the 46,942 GPA 5s that were achieved last year.
This year also bore good news in terms of breaking down the gender gap. More female candidates were registered for the exam than male candidates, signaling a step towards equal opportunity.
We congratulate our youngsters on their successes in the JSC and JDC, despite tremendous uncertainty, and wish that future batches will have to face fewer political obstacles than this one.
