SINGAPORE - 91.4 per cent of the 14,185 students who sat the 2014 Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (GCE A-Level) Examination received at least three H2 passes, with a pass in General Paper or Knowledge and Inquiry, said a joint statement by Ministry of Education (MOE) and Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board (SEAB) on Monday.

The school candidates collected their result slips from their respective schools this afternoon at 2pm.

The Straits Times reported that this year's cohort performed better, with a higher passing rate than the 91.1 per cent from the previous year.

This year's results also marked the best performance since the A-level curriculum was revised in 2006.

Private candidates will receive their results by post. They can also access their results online via the Singapore Examinations and Assessment Board website at http://www.seab.gov.sg from 2pm today.

In his Facebook post on Monday morning, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong addressed the students: "Whichever path you choose, don't forget to thank the teachers, family members and friends who helped you to get here. Do continue to work hard and live life to the full. All the best!"
