The Minister of Education and Training Dr 'Mamphono Khaketla announced that the 2010 Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE) results will be published on Thursday.

Briefing the media in Maseru on Wednesday, Dr Khaketla said there were 43,544 candidates who registered for the examinations and 41,869 sat for the examinations.

'Out of those who sat for the PSLE, 5,954 obtained a first class pass, showing a decrease of 1.9 percent as compared to last year's results.

'9,877 got a second class pass which has also declined by 2.4 percent as compared to the results of last year,' she said, highlighting that the decrease in the number of candidates who obtained first and second classes can be attributed to poor performance in both Mathematics and Science subjects.

Dr Khaketla further said 20,803 obtained a third class pass, showing an increase of 5.8 percent as compared to last year's results, adding that 5,235 have failed amounting to a 12.5 percent lower than last year's results.

She said the results will be available at the district education offices across the country where Principals will be provided with the results of their own schools.

The results can also be accessed through mobile cellular phones messages (SMS), different websites that include www.education.gov.ls, www.lesotho.gov.ls as well as www.publiceyenews.com.

The Minister congratulated those who passed and encouraged those who failed to try again and ensure that they improve their performance next time.

She also thanked all stakeholders for their contribution towards the success of the 2010 examinations.
Dr Khaketla also took the opportunity to wish all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year as well as accident free holidays.
