Botswana Examinations Council (BEC) has released the 2014 Botswana General Certificate for Secondary Education (BGCSE) results.

A total of 37,384 candidates wrote the 2014 examination showing an increase in candidature of 9.73 percent compared to 2013 cohort of 34,069.  There were 15,754 (42.14%) male candidates and 21,630 (57.86%) female candidates sitting for the 2014 BGCSE Examination. There were 25,186 (67.37%) candidates from government and government-aided schools and 12,198 (32.62%) private candidates.

The private candidates category included 6,988 (18.69%) Back-to-School candidates, 2,278 (6.09%) individual private candidates and 2,932 (7.84%) candidates from private schools. Since the BGCSE is a subject-based qualification with no aggregation, the measure used to gauge the performance of candidates is the proportion of candidates who were awarded Grade C or better in 5 syllabi.
