Thursday, August 21, 2014. AARON HUMES Reporting: Last week preliminary results in the May-June 2014 sitting of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) examinations were released.
Results are mixed to say the least, but Belize can be proud of its students increasing the percentage of Grades I-III steadily over the past three years, from 74.1% in 2012 to 75.1% in 2013 and 76.5% in 2014.
And the Ministry of Education is reasonably pleased as well.
However, Deputy CEO Allan Genitty says they want to examine the results a bit more closely.
He did tell us that the Ministry wants to see greater participation of students taking CSEC and CAPE and doing well.
The total number of participating CSEC candidate is down but their grades have improved, particularly in Mathematics and Physics.
However, Caribbean History, English A and B and Social Studies have seen some scores drop. The award recognition ceremony takes place later this year.
