The Registrar said the performances are higher than the 2020 in-school NBC/NTC examination results where 36,202 Candidates, representing 62.99 percent obtained five Credits and above including English Language and Mathematics, and 48,597 Candidates scored five Credits and above with or without English Language and Mathematics.
