SC results were out yesterday, January 17. The success rate is at 72.1%.
The success rate of students who sat for the SC examinations last year (2016) is at 72.1%, Mauritius and Rodrigues combined—individually, 71.93 % for the former and 73.88% for the latter.
The stats from the previous years were slightly better, though. A decreasing trend has been recorded.
|Year||Success Rate/ %|
Girls have had better results than boys, as is the general norm: 6,270 on 8,358 of them passed their examinations compared to only 4,859 of 7,097 male students.
The following 10 secondary schools have had 100% success rate:
- D.Ramphul SSS
- Dar-ul-Ma’arif Secondary School
- Dr. Maurice Curé Form VI College
- Forest-Side SSS
- France Boyer de la Giroday SSS
- Islamic Cultural College Form VI (Vallée-des-Prêtres)
- Mahatma Gandhi Institute
- Mahatma Gandhi Secondary School (Moka)
- Morning Star School
- Queen Elizabeth College (QEC)
Students had access to their results online, on the Cambridge International Examinations website, as has been the case for 3 years now. They had been given their unique user IDs and passwords in advance, and were able to login yesterday morning to view their results. However, given that the website was overloaded, it was not accessible to everyone: for instance, the administration of Mahatma Gandhi Secondary School was unable to load the webpage. Students having no Internet connection at home who had called at the institution to check their results, therefore, had to wait.
This year’s SC results stand out because of the brilliant performance of a 12-year-old girl, Sharmeen Choomka from City College, who obtained 10 aggregates at the exams. She has been able to do this by skipping a number of grades: she completed only a year of pre-primary school, and was exempted from Std V in primary education as well as Form 3 and 4 of secondary schooling. This appears to be a tradition in her family—Sharmeen has only followed the example of her elder sisters. Sharmeen now looks forward to completing the HSC at City College itself.
As for Higher School Certificate (HSC) results, they will be revealed in the first week of next month, on February 3.
