O-level students put up good performance

SINGAPORE - Of the 34,124 who took the exam, 82.7 per cent attained at least five passes, matching the record set in 2004. Since then, the figure had stayed below 82 per cent, with 81.3 per cent the mark set for the 2012 exam. The Education Ministry (MOE) also said that 95.7 per cent of the Class of 2013 scored three or more passes, with 99.9 per cent passing at least one O-level subject. MOE did not name the nation's top scorers, and the schools followed suit, like last year.
