At this year’s May/June sitting of CXC’s CSEC examinations, 145 students of the St Vincent Girls’ High School were examined in a combination of 25 subjects. Ninety students (62.07 per cent of the total number of students registered) registered for more than nine subjects, which is the maximum number of subjects offered by the school.{{more}}

The school recorded an overall pass rate of 97.09 per cent.

“We deem as significant the 100 per cent passes in 13 subject areas. The pass rate for the other subjects range from 87.04 per cent to 99.91 per cent. Worthy of particular note is the 97.91 per cent pass rate in Mathematics, an increase of 11.91 per cent over last year’s results,” a release from the school said.

Individual student performances range from 12 to four subject passes. Three of 14 students who sat 12 subjects obtained all Grade Ones. These students are Rhea Cain, Kyra Matthias and this year’s valedictorian, Jodi Porter.

Twenty-three students passed 11 subjects, while 45 passed 10 subjects. Sixty-four students gained from four to nine passes.

“We congratulate all of our girls and wish them well in their pursuit of excellence. We also commend our teachers for their unswerving commitment to preparing our students for success. The invaluable contribution of parents must also be applauded. Their prayers, coaching and support all redound to the success of the students,” the release said.
