Second place went to Kaela Amari Bobb, of Kingstown Preparatory, who was one of two students with a perfect score for social studies.

Miles Troy Durrant, of Fair Hall Primary, the top male performer in the exams, tied for third along with Osanna Chantal Sprott, of St Mary’s RC, the third highest ranked female student. 

Durrant and Jeidon Hanz Arthur, of Langley Park Government, were the other students with a perfect maths score.

There was also a tie for sixth place, shared by Le Raun Fadil Robinson, of Biabou Methodist, who was second for boy, and

Ennabelle Elizabeth Mc Master, of Windsor Primary, who placed fifth for girls.

The third ranked males, Myles Jaron Dalton, of Kingstown Preparatory, and Matthew William Clarke, of Sugar Mill Academy, also tied for the overall 8th position.

Clarke was also the top language performer, scoring 96%.

Schoolmates Dylan Joshua Pretli and Jael Jian-Li Forbes of St. Mary’s RC tied for 5th position for males and 10th overall.

The Grade 6 students wrote the final examination on May 13.

Of the 1,714 students registered, 1,705 wrote the final examination.

Students’ final scores were derived from the aggregate scores of both components of the CPEA — the external assessment which consisted of multiple choice tests in mathematics, science, language arts and social studies and from the school-based assessment (SBA) 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 SBA was for a total of 200 marks or 40% of the total score, while the external assessment was 300 marks or 60% of the total score.

“The criterion for determining the required standard is that students must acquire at least 50% of the possible 500 marks,” the ministry said.

The preliminary results indicate that the proportion of students who met the prescribed standard was 1,430 (83.87%), a one-percentage point decrease compared to 84.96% in 2021.

Of the students meeting the prescribed standard, 671 (78.11%) were males and 759 (89.72%) females.

‘The Ministry of Education congratulates all students and extends gratitude to the head teachers, teachers and staff at all schools and other stakeholders for their support of the students,” the ministry said.
