Monday, July 14, 2003 - Male students have recorded stronger performances in this year’s Common Entrance examination results, which were officially released on Thursday, July 10. The trend in recent years showed a decline in the number of successful males - a cause for concern in many quarters.

This year, male students have made a remarkable comeback by featuring prominently in the top ten list. According to Acting Registrar in the Examinations Unit of the Ministry of Education Augusta Ifill, the ministry is particularly pleased about this achievement.

Four boys featured in the top five positions. The first place went to Sermandee Phulgence - a girl from the Ave Maria Primary School - with a score of 95.333. Placing second was Tigani Louisy from the RC Boys Primary with a score of 94.667. The third place went to Kentry Frederick from Plain View Combined with 93.333. There was a fourth place tie with Johannes Joseph of Pierrot Combined and Evans Skeete from Tapion Private School receiving scores of 93.000.

Also holding their own are the out districts schools. Ifill says they continue to give a “commendable account” of themselves, scoring well above the national mean.

According to the registrar’s analysis, this year’s results are generally consistent with the last two years.

“Math remained at 44% overall pass rate, English Language went down a little bit from 49 to 47. General paper dropped slightly as well. The overall National Composite Mean (NCM), was 46.734 percent,” Ifill surmised.

Of 4,477 candidates whose results were processed, 2,687 students or 60 per cent have secured schools places.
