the CPEA. That is, the External Assessment which consisted of Multiple Choice Tests in Mathematics, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies totalling 300 marks or 60% of the total score and from the School-Based Assessment which comprised a Project, a Writing Portfolio, a Book Report as well as Teacher Tests, Pupil Made Tests and Can-Do-Skills exercises in Mathematics, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies. The internal component was worth 200 marks or 40% of the total score.

 

There are 45 out of 66 schools that recorded a pass rate in excess of 80%. 

The Ministry of Education congratulates all students and extends gratitude to all school staff and other stakeholders for their support of the children.
