Grade 10 and 12 results not yet out, SMS is false!

WINDHOEK; The results of the 2014 Junior Secondary Certificate (JSC) Grade 10 and Grade 12 Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate (NSSC) national examinations are not yet out, contrary to a text message saying so.

The Chief Public Relations Officer in the Ministry of Education (MOE), Johanna Absalom said in a media statement on Tuesday that the last day for the finalisation of the marking process is 05 December 2014.

She said this in reference to a mobile phone text message doing the rounds that the results will be released on Wednesday or Thursday this week.

The text message also falsely gave the website: and mobile phone number 2929 that learners can access their results.

Absalom said the ministry assures learners, their parents and the public that the text message is false and unfounded.

“The Ministry of Education has no agreement or any links to the website in the provision and release of results,” said Absalom.

Although the text message line 2929 is the ministry’s official number, it has not yet been activated for the release of the examination results.

Meanwhile, a total of 46 346 Grade 10 full-time and part-time learners registered for the 2014 national examinations, while 44 932 Grade 12 full-time and part-time Ordinary Level learners registered and 12 079 Grade 12s registered for the Higher Level examinations.
