Tuesday, August 4th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: The Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate Examination (CSEC) is the standard end-of-term examination for fourth form students leaving high school.
Since last year based on the Ministry of Human Development and Education’s means survey among Standard five students preparing for the Primary School Examination (PSE) and Third Form students entering fourth form, Government has subsidized the payment of costs for up to six examinations for all students.
However, there has been a report that participation in the examinations is down this year. Could it be that students are skipping out on the examinations and leaving Government with the bill?
Minister of Education Patrick Faber referred the question to the QUADS Unit but says that if the report is true, the students will see the worst impact later on.
Skipping the examination is no spite to Government; the student simply loses the qualification they need to find a job in Belize or the Caribbean later on.
Results for this year’s examination are due in a few weeks’ time.
