This year also saw an increase of 13 percent in the number of High Level candidates, with 52 529 full-time and part-time candidates sitting for this year's examinations. The Grade 12 Ordinary Level results will be released no later than January 18 next year.

"Tremendous progress has been made by the Directorate of National Examinations and Assessment to bring the release of the Grade 12 Ordinary Level as near as possible to the Grade 10 and Grade 12 High Level results," the ministry said.

The results will also be available on the official website of the Directorate of National Examinations and Assessment (www.dnea.gov.na) and the ministry's website (www.moe.gov.na), as well as be accessible via an SMS service.

Candidates should SMS the letter JSC or NSSC to denote the name of the examination, followed by their surname and first name to either 2929 or 99099. The system will reply with an SMS that contains the surname, name and results.
