According to A MSS Press Release, 54 students wrote a total of three hundred and sixty two (360) subject entries in the 2012 CSEC Examinations at General and Technical Proficiency Levels.  Based on the provisional results Grades I – III passes were obtained in two hundred and sixty eight (268) of them yielding a pass rate of 74.4%, down from the 80% obtained in 2011.

Of the 24 subject proficiencies taken at the CXC, 100% passes were recorded in sixteen of the subjects; these include: Biology, Caribbean History, Chemistry, EDPM, Electricity/Electronics, Food and Nutrition, Principles of Business, Principles of Accounts, Technical Drawing, Agriculture, Building[Woods], Building Construction, English B, Physics and Integrated Science.

Pass rates ranging from 80 to 97% were recorded in three subject proficiencies, these include: Geography, Information Technology and Social Studies. Spanish recorded a 70% pass rate, while Office Administration recorded a 67% pass rate.  While a 50% pass rate was recorded for English A.  Math recorded a 37.7% pass rate.

According to a statement accompanying the release, “The school wishes to highlight the performance of students in Physics and Agriculture. Students who were originally prepared for Cambridge exams in both areas, had to change to CXC CSEC during the final year as a result of a policy decision by the Cambridge Examination Board.  There was 100% pass rate in Agriculture up from the 67% obtained at Cambridge.  Physics recorded a 100% pass rate up from the 33% in 2011.  This performance in Physics is the best recorded for over 12 years.

The school records it appreciation to the officials at the Ministry of Agriculture, Mrs. Greaves, Mr. Joseph and the teachers for their sterling contribution towards the success of our student in these areas.

“A key indicator in the Education Development Plan (EDP), is the percentage of students obtaining 5 CSEC passes including English and Math.  22.5% of the year five cohort obtained 5+ CSEC passes inclusive of Math and English.     The target for this year was 26%.  The school fell short of its target by 3.5%,” the release stated.

The school extends congratulations to the students who were successful, the teachers for their hard work and dedication and the parents for their support.  For those who were not as successful as they would have liked, the school encourages them to pursue further studies.
