For the first time in the history of the test, students have achieved 60 percent passes in English.
However, 46 percent gained 50 percent or more in social studies a 1 percent drop compared to last year. Passes at science remained the same with 46 percent achieving 50 percent or more marks. There was a marked improvement of 60 percent in passes for English compared to 54 percent last year. Meanwhile mathematics saw a 7 percent reduction in those gaining 50 percent or more.
