2013 PRIMARY SCHOOL LEAVING EXAMANITION RESULTS RELEASED
06/12/13
THE 2013 PSLE RESULTS RELEASED TODAY.

STANDARD 7 PRIMARY SCHOOL LEAVING EXAMINATION RESULTS RELEASED.

The Minister of Education and Skills Development Honourable Dr Pelonomi Venson - Moitoi has authorised the release of the 2013 Standard 7 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results.

A total of 43788 set for the 2013 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). The candidature increased from 43583 in 2012 to 43788 this year representing an increase of 205 or 0.47%. Of this number 22135 were females while 21653 were males.

The Ministry has made the following observations:

  • The 2013 results show a credit pass (grades A - C) of 67.58% compared to 2012 results which were at 65.0%. This shows the overall increase of 2.58% in credit pass rate from 2012 results.
  • This increase is due to improvements in overall perfomance in Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Religious Education, Agriculture and Moral Education.
  • The best perfoming districts are North East at 82.6 % and South East at 81.9 %. Although Kgalagadi is still low, it has shown a significant growth in perfomance. The drop in the level of performance by Jwaneng needs attention.

As is normal practice, the details of how to access the results will be provided by Botswana Examinations Council (BEC).

The Minister has expressed her gratitude to the BEC Board and staff for the manner in which the 2013 STD VII Examinations were processed.
