Drum roll please! The long awaited May/June, 2014 examination preliminary results for both Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) have been released.

According to a press release from the Montserrat Community College, candidates obtained 118 subject passes from 127 entries, scoring a pass rate of 93%. This commendable feat was the college’s highest achievement in its “ten year history.”

However, the students’ performance mirrored last years in that the college recorded 100% passes in nine subjects again. These passes were in “Biology Unit 1, Chemistry Unit 1, Communication Studies, Computer Science Unit 1, Information Technology Units 1 and 2, Environmental Science Unit 2, Pure Mathematics Unit 2 and Physics Unit 2.”

Applied Mathematics Unit 1, Caribbean Studies, Physics Unit 1 and Management of Business Unit 2 had pass rates above 80%.

Additionally, Jermine Nedd was singled out as having passed “the five CAPE Units that he wrote” and was deemed the “most successful student this year”.   Kahleah Holloran-Crichlow also wrote five, but passed “four of the five subjects that she sat”.

Other students highlighted were those who passed all four subjects: Sharese Allen, Jason Daniel, Kendell Hercules, Eurlanzo Jeffers, John Jeffers, Triscia Meade, Samisha Samuel, Tiffannie Skerritt, Trichelle Spencer, Vanice Tuitt, and Sovanyé White.

Tiffannie Skerritt was also commended for attaining two Grade I’s, one Grade II and one Grade III in her four passes.

The college also reported that “[a]nother 17 students, obtained passes in three CAPE Units.”

MSS CXC and CSEC, up and down successes

In the Montserrat Secondary School’s release, forty-eight (48) students (representing 91% of its year 5 cohort) entered to write twenty-one 21 subjects at the General and Technical Proficiency Levels this year. Grades 1 – 3 passes were attained in “one hundred and seventy-four (174) of them yielding a pass rate of 64% down from 74.8% in 2013.”

It was felt that “[t]he overall performance of students appeared to have been impacted by the disruptions during the school year including the 2 major relocations and the absence of most of the senior staff including the VP for most of the school year.”

Despite these setbacks, 100% passes were garnered in five subjects: Chemistry, Food and Nutrition, Technical Drawing, French and Principles of Accounts, while Information Technology obtained 93.7% passes. Electricity/Electronics had a pass rate of 87.5%, while “Spanish recorded an 80% pass rate”.

Further, “[a] pass rate of 56.5% was recorded for English A, up from 46% in 2013. Math recorded a 50 % pass rate up from 49% in 2013.”   Additionally, “twenty of the 34 (59%) students who wrote 5 or more subjects gained passes in at least 5 subjects. Fifteen of them, (44%), gained passes which included both Math and English.”

The school also noted that “for the first times in recent memory” three students were entered for Additional Math. However, only two of the three students passed.

Moreover, the following students were commended for their “notable” performances in the examinations:

Chekwube Okereke who achieved passes in ten subject areas, 5 Grade 1s and 4 Grade 2s and 1 Grade 3 (for Additional Math).

Dauquan Wray who obtained 9 subject passes (6 Grade 1s and 3 Grade 2s) and Tuyen Osborne – 6 Grade 1s (including Math examined in January 2013), 1 Grade 2 and 2 Grade 3 (including Additional Math).

Darenthea Sweeney achieved passes in 8 subject areas – 3 Grade 2s and 5 Grade 3s.

Six students passed 7 subjects namely; Joel Bish, Nikita Howe, Ashniel Jeffers, Dwanifia Joseph, Bjorn Osborne and Shojaunae White.”

In addition to this, “5 students passed 6 and 5 subjects respectively.”

Furthermore, the school informed that, “[t]he boys performed creditably. 53% of the Grades 1 to 3 passes were achieved by the boys. Additionally, 69% of the passes at the Grade 1 level were obtained by boys.”

The Montserrat Reporter takes this opportunity to congratulate all of the students and schools for their successes in the examinations.
