I Remember – GCE “O” Level Results were published in the New Nation

Back in 1973 when I took my GCE “O” Level examinations, the results were published in the New Nation newspaper. The link to the NLB e-resources is below.

A screen shot of a small section of the full page is attached. You had your name and the number of subjects passed were after your name. So you know how your classmates did for the examinations.

In that year, 22,978 students sat for the examinations and 91% of the students were awarded certificates.

40 years on, schools are not allowed to publicise their students’ academic results, even names of their top students. This is to make a point that achievements of students need not be solely on academic fields. This is to reduce stress on students also.
