A press statement from Ministry of Education, Science and Technology says out of 255,583 candidates who sat for the examinations, 193, 795 have qualified for the award of the Primary School Leaving Certificate of Education. This represents a 75.82 percent pass rate.
“All candidates are informed that their results will be available at the centres where they registered. All queries about the results must be routed to MANEB through Head Teacher at which candidates registered and wrote their examinations. MANEB will not entertain any query about the results made directly to the Board by candidates or any other individual,” reads the statement in part signed by Ken Ndala Secretary for Education, Science and Technology.
The statement further says all queries should reach MANEB by Friday, 22 September 2017. After this date, no further queries will be entertained.
“All students who have been selected to start Form 1 are requested to report to the schools they have been selected to by 17 September 2017, for boarding school and 18th September 2017 for all day scholars,” adds the statement.
