(Business in Cameroon) - Out of the 138,583 candidates that registered for the 2019 baccalaureate exam in Cameroon, more than 83,000 were successful, data from the baccalaureate office indicates.

The office reveals that this is a net improvement in the success rate, since during the previous session, it was 52.28% while this year, it is 60.18%. As odd as it might sound, the Northwest affected by sociopolitical crisis since October 2016 ha kept its rank as the region with the highest success rate followed by the coastal and central regions.

During the 2019 session, there were 23,226 candidates more than during the 2018 session. According to the office, this is because those who were unable to participate last year in the three northern regions were able to register this year in other regions.

The 138,583 candidates were spread across 297 examination centres. The baccalaureate office explains that it is highly satisfied with this success rate and intends to keep this trend in the coming sessions.
