2015 BOTSWANA GENERAL CERTIFICATE FOR SECONDARY EDUCATION (BGCSE) RESULTS RELEASED

Botswana Examinations Council (BEC) has released the 2015  Botswana General Certificate for Secondary Education (BGCSE) results. A total of 38 796 candidates wrote the 2015 examination
showing an increase in candidature of 3.8% compared to 2014 cohort of 37 384. There were 16 483 (42.5%) male candidates and 22 313 (57.5%) female candidates sitting for the 2015 BGCSE Examination.

There were 25,640 (66.1%) candidates from government and government-aided schools compared to 25,186 (66.4%) in 2014 and 13,156 (33.9%) private candidates compared to 12,198 (32.6%) in 2014.

The private candidates category included 6569 (16.9%) Back-to-School candidates, 3591 (9.3%) individual private candidates and 2996 (7.7%) candidates from private schools.

Since the BGCSE is a subject-based qualification with no aggregation, the measure used to gauge the performance of candidates is the proportion of candidates who were awarded Grade C or better in 5 syllabi. This year 6291 (24.5%) candidates from government and government-aided schools were awarded Grade C or better in 5 syllabi compared to 5843 (23.2%) in 2014. This shows a noticeable increase of 1.3%.

Symbols used in the Results
• U denotes that a candidate failed to meet minimum requirements for Grade G.
• X denotes that a candidate failed to meet the requirements for the award of a syllabus grade.

The distribution of the results will be done as follows:
