The number of grade 12 candidates that have obtained school certificates in the 2018 examinations has reduced by 1.40 percent.

Announcing the results in Lusaka this morning, General Education Minister David Mabumba said a 63.44 percent pass rate was recorded compared to 64.84 percent recorded in 2017.

Mabumba attributed the decrease in performance to various factors such as the suspension of the conduct of the 2918 examinations.

He explained that according to the analysis on the performance of candidates, the proportion of boys who obtained school certificates was higher at 65.14 than that of girls which was at 61.53 percent.

The minister further said the number of schools that recorded 100 percent pass rate decreased from 73 in 2017 to 70 in 2018.
