Furthermore, Mrs Thanacoody Soborun accentuated that the 2022 results cannot be compared to the 2021 SC results, the main reason being that the examinations were held in June 2021.

“With the COVID-19 pandemic, special consideration was given, and the SC examinations were held in June 2021. Therefore, this year’s results must be compared to October/November 2019 in order to have a fair comparison,” the MES Director pointed out.

She also indicated that the percentage pass for the Island of Mauritius stands at 11,551, which is a rate of 78.65 %, with 6,519 girls (81.77%) and 5,032 boys (74.94%).
