The release of O-level examination results will depend largely on the country you took your exams, as well as the date you took your exams. For example, O-level results were released on 19th March 2011 in Sri Lanka while the release date was on 10th January 2011 in Singapore.

O-level stands for 'Ordinary level' and was first used in the British educational system in the 1950s. This was later replaced by the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) in 1988, which is still used in schools in the UK to date.

However, many critics have claimed that GCSE exams are easier than O-levels and have urged for the return of O-levels to boost exam standards. The UK may have favored GCSE's over O-levels but the latter is still used in many Commonwealth countries such as: Singapore, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Mauritius.

Individuals around the world opt to take O-level examinations because it is a well-respected international qualification which may give them access to further education overseas. This is also a minimum requirement for those who wish to proceed on to A-Levels and university, in the UK, or for those seeking employment straight after taking them.

The three main institutions that offer O-levels around the world are:

  • Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)
  • American Council for Higher Education
  • Edexcel International
If you have plans to study abroad after taking your O-level examinations, it's probably wise to check the requirements and qualifications needed in order to be accepted in your chosen overseas institution. Do this before you start your O-Level course so you know what you're working towards.
