Of the 1,515 students who sat for their A’ Level examinations this year, 78 percent passed in three subjects, the Education Ministry revealed at an award ceremony Thursday night to recognise top achievers.

This year’s top ten includes 188 students, 44 of whom were from atoll schools, with 15 students – a record number – achieving first place of the top ten. Two-thirds of the top ten achievers were female.
