The results were released 49 days after the last paper was written. A total of 29 subjects were examined.

“On the other hand, 50,057 candidates, representing 72.57% got five Credits and above, irrespective of English Language and Mathematics.
“A comparative analysis of candidates who scored five Credits and above, including English Language and Mathematics for 2018 and 2019 shows 62.48% for 2018 and 48.68% for 2019,” he stated.
The acting Registrar noted that there was an increase in recorded cases of examination malpractice in 2019 as against compared to 2018.
He disclosed that 17,004 cases were recorded in 2019 as against the 12,084 cases which were recorded in 2018.
