The Ministry of Education wishes to release the following information regarding the attainments of Year 13 students who sat the Year 13 Certificate Examination last year – 2014.

The highest mark in the Year 13 Examination is 379 and was scored by Nischal Raj of Jai Narayan College.

The overall percentage pass is 79.7 per cent.

This is an increase of 4.5 per cent when compared to the 75.2 per cent pass rate of 2013.

In releasing the results, the Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Dr Mahendra Reddy congratulated all students who passed the examination.

“The door is now open for students to pursue their career and is also an opportune time to secure financial assistance from the TSLB in the form of Toppers and Loans Scheme.

The Government has provided this assistance to ensure that students achieve their goals in life and contribute to the society that groomed them,” he said.

“For those who fail the exams, there is still room for further studies. They can repeat the examination or pursue bridging courses that will allow them to fulfill their aims and dreams in life.

“We want to see that all students proceed in various fields of study and secure or create employment in the future,” the Minister said.

“We will now analyse the results by school and subject to identify which schools need more attention and which subjects students have performed poorly so that resources are directed towards addressing these weaker areas.”
