    • A-level results to be released on Feb 24

       

      The 2016 GCE A-level examination results will be released next Friday (Feb 24).

      Candidates from schools may collect their result slips from their respective schools on that day, from 2.30pm onwards, the Ministry of Education said in a press release on Friday (Feb 17).

      Private candidates will be notified of their results by post, with the result slips mailed to the address they had registered with the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB).

      Those private candidates who are eligible for SingPass can also use their accounts to obtain their results online.

      This can be done over the Internet Examination Results Release System (iERRS) on SEAB's website at www.seab.gov.sg, from 2.30pm that day.

    • I certainly believe that JC is better than poly although poly is fun, relaxed, a place for you to explore opportunities and develop contacts. But reality, JC people will have a higher % in securing their local u place. Why did I say that? I am from poly GPA3.7 and I was unable to get into local U or even SIT!! Somemore for diploma holders to go local u also need to depends on your O level score zzz

    • 2016 A-Level results: 92.6% score at least 3 passes, slight drop from 2015

       

      A total of 12,538 students took last year’s GCE A-level examination and 92.6 per cent of these students obtained at least three H2 passes and a pass in General Paper (GP) or Knowledge and Inquiry (KI), said the Ministry of Education (MOE) on 24 Feb (Friday).

      This is a slight drop from the 93.1 per cent achieved by students in 2015.

      The 92.6 per cent pass percentage is the second-best performance by A-level takers since the curriculum was revised 10 years ago,

      On Thursday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Long had wished students well via his Facebook page. “Whatever your results, do take the time to consider what your interests and strengths are, and pursue them,” he wrote.

      “Your early 20s are a great time for self discovery and adventure. Remember to stay focussed, motivated, and driven. All the best!”

       

       

      GCE A-Level results dip slightly this year

      Results of the 2016 GCE A-Level examination dipped slightly from the previous year with about 92.6 per cent of last year’s cohort of 12,538 students getting at least three H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry.

      Nevertheless, it is the second best showing since the curriculum was revised about a decade ago. The class of 2015 scored the best results — 93.1 per cent of them achieving the same standard of passes.

      2014’s cohort saw 91.4 per cent attaining the same standard of passes.

      School candidates received their results at their schools on Friday (Feb 24) from 2.30pm. Private candidates will be notified of their individual results by post.

      Private candidates can also use their SingPass account to obtain their results online via Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board’s website at www.seab.gov.sg from 2.30pm on Friday.

       

      2016 A-level results: 92.6% get at least 3 passes, slight dip from 2015

      Of the 12,538 students who took last year's GCE A-level examination, 92.6 per cent achieved at least three H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper (GP) or Knowledge and Inquiry (KI).

      This is a slight dip compared to last year's cohort, 93.1 per cent of which achieved at least three H2 passes and a pass in GP or KI.

      But it is the second-best performance by an A-level cohort since the curriculum was revised about a decade ago, with last year's performance setting the benchmark for the highest pass rate.

      Previously, the second-best performance was set by the 2014 cohort, with a 91.4 per cent pass rate.

      As a whole, the last three cohorts have attained the three highest pass rates since the curriculum was revised.

      On Thursday morning (Feb 23), Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong posted his best wishes to the students on his Facebook page.

      "Whatever your results, do take the time to consider what your interests and strengths are, and pursue them." he wrote.

      "Your early 20s are a great time for self discovery and adventure. Remember to stay focussed, motivated, and driven."

      Students went back to their schools at 2.30pm on Friday (Feb 24) to collect their result slips.

      Private candidates will receive their results by post. Those who are SingPass account holders can log in to the internet Examination Results Release System (iERRS) to obtain their results online.

      The system can be found on the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board's website at https://ierrs.seab.gov.sg/.

      Results on the website were also made available from 2.30pm on Friday.

      If your CCD/C can't make it into your desired Uni course at a local Uni, then retake your A levels after you ORD, to get into a local Uni course you can live with. If you really don't want to retake A levels, then go private Uni.

      Hi, I got AAA/C for Bio, Chem, Math / Econs, as well as an A for PW and GP. I got a B for Chinese as well. Do I stand a good chance of getting scholarships? 


      What FireIce said.

      The bond-free scholarships you need all As. But you should be able to obtain bonded scholarships, where you'll have to work for the scholarship donor (eg. a Sg government ministry or agency) for a certain number of years.

    • Hi Merethe,

       You do not qualify for most humanities programmes in NUS, NTU and SMU except for Arts, Media and Design in NTU.

       So, you may wish to retake your A levels as a school candidate or private candidate, or go to MDIS, PSB or other local private unis or Johor private unis or other overseas uni; or go to poly or do engineering courses in NTU.

       All the best.

    • I got Chem-C , Math -C, Econs -C, H1 -D GP-B , and PW-B so in total CCC/DBB, UAP 69.
      My preferred choice is SOCIAL SCIENCE in smu or is but I don’t think can get in
      I’m not a science kind of person, I don’t want to do engineering?
      What are my options?
      I’m not sure if i should retake, I’m a student who repeated Sec 4 and jc1 (due to BOTH stupidity and laziness) so I’ve already wasted 2 years of my life…
      I want to go to UNI, not start work

    • Hey, I know this is unrelated but I need urgent help regarding this matter right now :(

       

      Hello, I am a JC 1 student who has currently been admitted to JC recently.

      I was wondering if JC transfers would be possible even when all the appeal/JAE period has been over.

      I actually missed my dream JC's cut off point by one point. I got 8-2=nett 6 for my o levels.

      I realise that the JC I dream to go is a prestigious school and hence it would be hard for me to transfer there with my cut-off. However, will it be possible for me to try to transfer there after my first MYE if I have done exceptionally well? if so, what will happen to my project work?

    • I plan to retake my A level as a private candidate this year. Since seab doesnt offer  old h2 science syllabus this year,will my spa result in 2016 be carried over to the new science syllabus if i take the new syallbus?

      The seab website wrote Private candidates who sat for 9646 H2 Physics, 9647 H2 Chemistry or 9648 H2 Biology in 2016 as school candidates and who wish to register for these subjects in 2017 may email their application to [email protected].
