A pupil of the Kingstown Preparatory School has recorded the highest average score in the 2019 Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA).

Seante Zelika Sade Marshall placed first with an average of 96.80 percent, while Kate-Lynn Meeliah Bobb of the Stubbs Government School was second with an average of 95.60%, a release from the Ministry of Education said.

There was a three-way tie for the third position. They are: Jada Jamelia Ruth Durrant, of the Kingstown Government School, Lazaro Lopez Lynch of the Kingstown Preparatory School and Aroma Sweet Toria David of the Richland Park Government School with an average of 95.20%

Grade 6 students registered for the 2019 Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) concluded their final examination on Friday May 17th, 2019. Of the 1785 students registered, 1780 wrote the final examination: 925 males and 855 females.

Students’ final scores were derived from the aggregate scores of both components of the CPEA. That is, the External Assessment which consisted of Multiple Choice Tests in Mathematics, Science , Language Arts and Social Studies 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 preliminary results indicate that the proportion of students who met the prescribed standard was 1552 (87.19%) a slight decrease over last year’s 87.43%. This number includes 749 (80.97%) males and 803 (93.2%) females.

There are 51 out of 67 schools that recorded a pass rate in excess of 80%.

CPEA Components:

School-Based Assessment – 200 marks or 40% of the total score
External Assessment – 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 of Education congratulates all students and extends gratitude to the Headteachers, teachers and staff at all schools for their support of the students. We are cognizant of the fact that outcomes in education are measured, not only in quantitative terms, but also in qualitative terms; therefore, the value added to the lives of all of the students, the top performers as well as those whose performance can be improved, is greatly appreciated.
