    1. FORWARD BY THE MINISTER

    It is my pleasure to release this annual report on the state wide

    certificate examinations for Puntland State of Somalia both at the

    primary and secondary levels. This report is a significant

    milestone in our education, because it does not only sum up the

    schooling over the past 8 and 12 years respectively, but it serves

    as yardstick to measure the performance of the education

    system as a whole.

    This report is a concrete evidence of achievements of the collective efforts of the public

    and private sectors, parents, students, government and the development partners, and

    it is a turning point in the history of our education system. I am convinced that 2011

    examinations administration and results will be of added value to our successive

    achievements over the previous years.

    The result of 2011 examinations reveals the maturity and competence the education

    system in Puntland has accomplished. It is very clear that our confidence in the

    curriculum, teachers, educational managers, and other education related issues has

    picked up. This confidence is what we have been building on for the last few years, and

    should act as a stepping stone for all our initiatives and aspirations in the future.

    I am really happy to announce that the results of 2011 were extremely fascinating as it

    appears at a glance. The total number of candidates wrote the 2011 form four

    examination were 1518, out of which 1387 (91.3%) have successfully passed the

    examination and 131 (8.6%) failed. In addition the number of form four candidates

    increased by 15.7% this year. Likewise, the number of primary school examination

    candidates was 4310 out of which 82% passed successfully while 17% failed. These

    results have demonstrated that through dedication, hard work and commitment, our

    education system can be improved further and the ministerial goals and objectives

    achieved.

    At this point, I wish to take these opportunity to thank our development partners AET,

    UNICEF, and CfBT whose involvement and worthy contributions was the major driving

    force behind our success. I also thank all the parents, principles/headteachers,

    teachers, students and other education managers who were actively involved in the

    examination process. Special thanks go to the staff and members of Puntland National

    Examinations Board (PNEB) who made it possible for this national event to take place

    without any hindrance and living up to the expectations of our people.

    Finally, for those who never made the cut-off and were short of their expectations, I urge

    you to shrug off the disappointment and resume the education journey with new

    determination, vim; vigor and energy, for life never ends there.

    Hon. Abdi Farah Said Minister of Education PUNTLAND
