The 2017 GCE Ordinary Level (O-Level) exam results released this week show a marginal dip in performance compared to the 2016 results.

Students who achieved at least five passes in 2017 was 83.4% compared to 84.3% in 2016.

According to a report in the Straits Times, 96.4% of the pupils secured three or more passes, marginally below the 96.5% in 2016. 99.9%  passed at least one subject.

According to the Ministry of Education (MOE) and the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB), a total of 29,112 school candidates sat the O-Level examination in 2017, along with 1,570 private candidates.

Out of the 1,570 private candidates, 90.8% received O-Level certificates, slightly up from the previous year's 90.2%.

The Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level examination is a national examination held annually in Singapore. Whilst it has no relation to the British GCSE examinations, having de-linked since 2006, the qualification is recognised internationally as equivalent to its international variant, the IGCSE.
