Botswana Examination Council (BEC) has announced the release of the 2018 Junior Certificate Examination results.
BEC Corporate Communications Manager, Fingile Makgalemele, says their greatest achievement in JCE results is that they managed to produce 6 students who attained merit compared to the previous years.
She said in 2016 there was only one merit student while in 2017 there were two.
Makgalemele further added that the overall performance of students has also significantly improved in grades A, B, C and D.
“We commend students for their excellent achievement. JCE candidates including private candidates indicate that 85.8% of candidates obtained grade E or better compared to 82.9 in 2017 showing an increase of 2.9%. What I want to emphasise is that grade D and E are pass and C or better are credit passes. There is a symbol X for students who registered and failed to seatt for the exam or failed to complete the examinations due to various reasons,” said Makagalemele.
She said these are provisional results and that those who are not satisfied can apply for remarking within six weeks.
Makgalamele said the results are on their website www.bec.co.bw or sms and that they can call the BEC toll free number (0800601025) if they experience any difficulty.
