Chairman of the Reunion 2018 Committee Hubert Charles has congratulated students who wrote Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Examination this year.

A total of nine hundred and seventy-six (976) students wrote the CSEC examinations in thirty-three (33) subject areas.

Charles said the Dominican students who sat the CSEC exam this year decided that “their exams results will not be determined by the troubling study conditions left in the wake of Lady Maria but that they would put forward their best notwithstanding the conditions they were called on to manage and excel they did
These students therefore effectively “put Lady Maria in her place”, he said.

Thirty-eight (38) students scored six or more ones in the 2018 exams with fourteen students scoring 6 ones, five students receiving 7 ones, five students scoring 8 ones, 11 students receiving 9 ones, and three students scoring 10 ones.

There was a 3.6% increase in the overall percentage pass of students receiving grades 1, 2 and 3 in the 2018 CSEC exams compared to 2017.

Dominica’s average at the exams was also twelve percent higher than the regional average.
