In brief 2023 Exam Results

  • 2023 exams are better than last year's as there are no major incidences or leakage of exam papers.
  • Grade 12 results for Namibia will come out early in January 2024.
  • According to the latest data, there are a total of 99,631 students registered for the 2023 exams of which 51, 958 are full-time pupils in mainstream schools. These students are directly affected by exam paper leakages.
  • Several subjects in the NSSC Ordinary Level Grade 12 (5 subjects) and the Revised Curriculum Ordinary Level Grade 11 (11 subjects) were affected by the leakage of exam papers in 2021.
  • NSSCO (new) and NSSCAS (new) results will be released on dates intended by the education ministry prior to the examination leakages.
  • The leaked exams are NOT eligible for Cambridge International accreditation in 2023.
  • Candidates will rewrite exams in January 2024. Schools and local education authorities to facilitate the rewrite in collaboration with the education ministry.

What the exam paper leakages and rewrites mean

We understand the Teachers Union, private schools and other educational organisations are against the resit (or rewrite) of the examinations leaked early in December 2023. However, the leakage of exam papers has been widespread in the country.

Understandably, this (the rewrite) is not what many Grade 12 and Grade 11 students would want, but it is in the best interest of the exam and the validity of the results and certificates that the students must resit. 

The education ministry and Cambridge International understand that the NSSCO and NSSCAS are internationally accredited and recognised certificates. And therefore, the exams must be free of cheating for them to be valid. 

When are the Grade 12 results in 2023 coming out?

The Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture (MoEAC), in a news release dated 8th December last year, stated that they will launch the results for Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate Ordinary (NSSCO, new) and Namibia Senior Secondary Certificate Advanced Subsidiary (NSSCAS, new) on the date they set originally. 

It is not clear when exactly MoEAC will release the results for this year, but based on last year's experience the ministry made the announcement on the 4th of February 2023, and the candidates accessed their results on the 5th of February 2023

That means that the results of 2023 Grade 12 and Grade 11 NCCSO (new) and NSSCA (new) will come out in early January 2023. The education ministry will annouce the results release for as soon as making and final check are completed.
