With the examination results having been released on April 18, the success percentage of Grade 5 and Grade 9 students in Kyimyindine increased this year when compared to that of last year.
As of the 2014-2015 Academic Year, Grade 5 and Grade 9 final examinations are held under the control of District Education officers for Grade 5 and Region/State Education officers for Grade 9 respectively.
There was an 80 per cent success rate in Grade 9 as 631 out of 788 students passed the exams while 86.29 per cent of Grade 5 students, 906 students out 1,050, passed in Kyimyindine.
Students had to take great care to pass the exam this year as there was no chance of a supplementation exam if they failed.
The results are released by three grades: Grade A (between 80 and 100 marks), Grade B (between from 60 to 79 marks) and Grade C (between 40 and 59 marks) with a smaller  number of students achieving Grade A  than those who achieved Grade B and C.
“The government-controlled exam is expected to produce more qualified students instead of the large number of students who passed the exams.
This system should be applied to every grade so that the students can develop the good habit of studying the whole texts without relying on hints and tips”, said a parent seeing his son’s result.—Snow
