By Aaron Humes: Graduation season is well underway and most of Belize’s children are looking forward to the annual mid-year school vacation. But a select few are sweating out the results of the Primary School Examination (PSE), which was given in separate sittings in March and May this year.
We checked with the Examination Section of the Education Department on Friday morning and again this afternoon to find out when results would be issued, as we had heard it might be Friday and then today.
However, the official we spoke to indicated that all the results are not yet ready and official results will be made available sometime this week.
The PSE, in its fifteenth year of testing, measures academic outcome and development in English, Mathematics, Social Studies and Science.
The top scorer is given the Jane and Michael Nembhard award during ceremonies held in mid-June, with scholarships for the other top students.
