South schools receive excellent CAPE results
Excitement and elation were some of the emotions secondary school students experienced, as they received their Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) results on Thursday. As many of them would be moving on to university to further their studies, they felt relieved as their hard work paid off. Although a complete analysis is still to be made, secondary schools in south Trinidad generally obtained excellent results.
Prospective law student Amthan Singh of ASJA Boys’ College said he was relieved and satisfied with the results he received. He is looking forward to the next chapter in his life. Similarly, Janine Boodram, of Naparima Girls’ High School said she was very excited and will be pursuing medicinal chemistry in London. In an interview at Naparima Girls’, principal Carolyn Gosine said she was elated at the results. “We have gotten 100 per cent passes in the certificates. I am excited, really happy to see the expression on the children’s faces.”
ASJA Girls’ College, San Fernando, acting principal Cindy Khan also revelled in the success of her students. “This year we had an exceptional performance, the majority of our students received ones, and a number of them gained distinctions. Well, as usual, it is really the effort of the teachers. Our students are extremely disciplined and focused on their work, and of course, they have the backing of their parents.”
For several schools, there has been an improvement in this year’s results, compared to last year’s. According to Alim Ali, principal of ASJA Boys’ College, San Fernando, there was an amelioration of the results this year. “I think I am satisfied with the performances, the boys are qualifying themselves to move on to the next level many of them are moving on to university.”
Meanwhile, Kenny Mootoosingh, dean at Presentation College, San Fernando, anticipates scholarships and even the President’s Medal. Science subjects including biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics received the highest passes in many of the schools. Naparima Boys’ College vice principal Dev Gosine also noted that students who wrote communication skills got excellent results in that area.
However, he said caribbean studies was a downfall to others. “Based on the calibre of results, I expect a number of scholarships,” said Gosine. At San Fernando Central Secondary, officials were unable to disclose any information regarding the school’s performance since they were in the process of analysing the results.
