SINGAPORE – The release of the A-Level examination results on Friday afternoon (Mar 4) saw the 2015 cohort achieve the highest pass rate in 10 years since the last revision of the curriculum.

According to a report by The Straits Times, an estimated 93.1 per cent of the 13,582 students who took the national examination, achieved at least three H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry.

One such student was 20-year-old Brendan Lau, who in an exclusive interview with AsiaOne, revealed that he had scored five As and a B for his A-Level examination. 

Brendan, who is deaf, had to work extra hard to keep up in class and communicate with friends. He became so good at his studies that many of his able-bodied classmates looked to him for help when they struggling with their work.

Private candidates who took the A-Level examination will receive their results by post. Candidates who have SingPass accounts can check their results online via the internet Examination Results Release System (iERRS) on the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board’s website.
