The Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts confirmed that the external examination provisional results for Year 10 were released to schools yesterday and will be available to students and parents from 8am, today.

“The 14,519 students who sat for the exam can get the results online and from their respective schools and District Offices,” said Mr Reddy.

“Overall, the result is quite pleasing relative to last year. Last year, we note that, for a pass in English and best 5 subjects, 42 per cent of the students passed whilst this year, we have a pass rate of 45 per cent.

“This is a good sign that we are improving performance of more students following the reforms (see table)

“We also note that pass rates in the compulsory subjects that is, English (60 per cent), Mathematics (34 per cent), Basic Science (45 per cent), Social Science (42 per cent) and Commercial Studies (38 per cent) have all improved significantly relative to last year.

“I acknowledge the effort and hard work that has been put in by all the students.

“This is the second year after the re-introduction of External Examinations at Year 10 and I am sure all children are eager to know their results. I urge all children to be proud of their results and see what you need to plan upon for your future.

“Year 10 is particularly important for secondary school students as their next educational journey will very much reflect the career choices they make.

“That is, students will have to carefully evaluate the subjects and combinations they intend to pursue in Year 11 and those subjects and combinations will to a large extent determine their future jobs,” said Mr Reddy.

“This year due to Cyclone Winston, many of our students, teachers and school infrastructure were severely affected and I take this opportunity to thank all in the Cyclone ravaged zones for your continued commitment.

“At a time of disaster and suffering, our nation stood fast to the task of prioritising education and I applaud the relentless sacrifice and efforts of all stakeholders during those times,” said Mr Reddy.

The Education Minister added that, as the results have been released well before the end of 2016, parents and children have ample time to prepare for the 2017 academic year. “We are mindful that the students have to plan for the subject combinations that they will take up in Year 11.

“Therefore, the space given can be utilised by children to acquaint them with the various subject combinations. By now I am certain that all Year 10 students have already made these plans and so they can communicate with friends, peers, teachers and other authorities to be fully aware of how they can plan for the new year.

“We urge students who have an aptitude or interest in technical area to enrol at one of our Technical College Campuses and pursue Certificate II level studies in any of the Trade area.

“The trade skills and qualifications are in huge demand not only in Fiji but globally and I do hope our children will take advantage of the programmes that we offer at our Technical College Campuses.

“The students can get information on the courses and programmes from their nearest Technical College Campuses or refer to the Ministry of Education, Heritage and Arts website: www.education.gov.fj
I again congratulate all students who sat for the exams and urge you to take important lessons from your results as you step into a new year.

“I also wish to remind you to be safe in the holidays and look after your health.”
