81.3% score 5 or more passes in 2012 GCE O-Level exam
It's results day for students and private candidates who sat the GCE O-Level Examination last year.
Overall, 81.3 per cent scored five or more passes.
It's slightly lower than the 81.9 per cent of the 2011 examination.
37,267 candidates took the examination, including about 3,000 private candidates.
Amid the increased concerns over the extreme pressure stemming from the Primary School Leaving Examination, the Ministry of Education has stopped its practice of announcing the top-scoring students whenever it releases the results of national examinations.
The O-Level results released to the media on Thursday focused on the performance of the whole cohort.
