Exam results ready for pick up Monday

| 27/08/2010

(CNS): The Department of Education Services (DES) has begun receiving results for the external examinations taken last year, and say that all external examination results can be collected on Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 August, from 9:00 am each day, at the Clifton Hunter (formerly George Hicks) school hall. Results will not be available at the John Gray High School, DES said in a release. While no mention was made of Brac students, CNS understands that students on that island can collect their results from the Cayman Brac High School.

The DES is in the process of collating and analysing results from the following boards: Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) from the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC); General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) from the Assessment and Qualification Alliance (AQA) and Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC); and Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) from Edexcel.

Results from each of these boards are released at different times during the month of August. Upon receipt the DES collates them to develop a complete record for students who have taken exams from multiple boards.

Year 11 students, who will be entering the new Year 12 programme this September, must collect their results, then meet with school counsellors and administrative staff to determine their Year 12 options. Placement in either the Foundation Studies, VoCat or Advanced Placement programme is dependent on examination results.

The educationministry has also announced that government schools have 45 new teachers this school year, seven of whom are Caymanian. The newly- qualified Caymanian teachers are Arek Nicholson, Brittiney Ebanks and Eldon Parchmon, who will respectively teach music, math and social studies at John Gray High School, Sharice McLean, who will teach math at Clifton Hunter High and Carla Ebanks, who will join the East End Primary School team. On the Brac, Kasandra Scott is slated to teach music at Cayman Brac High and Ricardo McLean will teach at the Creek and Spot Bay Infant School.
