And the college had reported that there were 100 percent passes in 17 of the 24 subjects areas, namely accounting units 2; Caribbean studies, communications studies, computer science units 1 and 2, digital media, entrepreneurship units 1 and 2. Environmental science units 1 and 2, geography unit 2, Information technology units 1 and 2, management of business unit 1, pure mathematics unit 1, sociology and tourism unit 2. Passes of 60 percent and above were obtained in the remaining seven subject areas.
