The Department of Public Examination has begun to release the results of the A'level examinations held in October/November of last year.

The Department said that the results would be released from the examination centers.

More than 1,300 students sat for the A'level exams held in the Maldives last year. The exams were carried out in 6 centers in the Greater Male' Area as well as 33 centers in the Atolls.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a huge obstacle for such publically held international examinations. Also, the Education Ministry decided against holding the May/June A'level exams last year after several papers of the exam were leaked online.

A total of 5 exam papers were leaked including that of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.

After canceling the exams, the Education Ministry gave the students two choices and one was to take part in the October/November exam while the other choice was to hold a teacher-based assessment for grading.

It was revealed that 74 students from 14 schools opted for the teacher-based assessment while 2,700 students decided to take part in the Edexcel exam.
