I put away all my gadgets and studied hard – CPEA top student
Being the top performer for your school in a regional examination is great, but being the top performer for your country in that same examination is even better.
Thatâs the position that Rosario Browne is in, having topped this yearâs Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) as a student of the Kingstown Preparatory School (KPS).
The Ratho Mill resident, the son of Ranold and Rosalind Browne, recorded 96% for mathematics, 98% for Science and 98% for Language to top the CPEA for his school and country.
âI feel very greatâ¦ I put away all my gadgets and studied hard. I went to extra lessons,â Rosario said on Monday when interviewed in his classroom at the KPS.
He added that he would like to thank his parents, teachers and his private tutor.
The scholar, who revealed that mathematics is his favourite subject said that he would like to continue his education at the St Vincent Grammar School (SVGS), a course that is expected to lead him to his dream of becoming a medical doctor or veterinarian.
His advice to students who will take the CPEA in the future is, âDo not let people bring you down because with God nothing is impossible.â(LC)
