Thursday, August 26, 2004 – Officials from the Ministry of Education, Human Resource Development, Youth and Sport are celebrating an improvement in the performance of St Lucian Students in the May/June 2004 CXC Examinations.

In a statement released by Minister of Education, Human Resource Development, Youth and Sports, the Hon Mario Michel, it was revealed that students had registered a one per cent increase in this year’s CXC examination.

“Last year, the overall pass rate in the General and Technical Proficiency subjects was 70.63 per cent, while this year, it climbed to 71.62 per cent. Eleven of the 19 secondary schools recorded improved performances this year, with over five percent increases being recorded by the Babonneau Secondary, the Clendon Mason Memorial, the Vide Boutielle Secondary, the Anse Ger Secondary and the SDA Academy,” Minister Michel informed.

Seventeen of the 19 secondary schools that entered students in the exam registred overall pass rates in excess of 50 per cent. Five schools attained pass rates of over 80 per cent - St Joseph’s Convent with 96.17 per cent, St Mary’s College at 91.05 per cent, Leon Hess Comprehensive at 84.07 per cent, followed by Castries Comprehensive and Vieux Fort Comprehensive at 81.46 per cent and 81.14 per cent, respectively.

The top five St Lucian performers at CXC this year were Skeeta Carasco with nine Grade Ones and a Grade Two, Lisa Mohammed, Phylicia Joseph, Huanna French, and Kelvin Cenac, who all scored nine Grade Ones.

The improvement in this year’s CXC results follows improvement recorded earlier this year at the Primary School Level in the Minimum Standard Test and the Common Entrance, making 2004 a good year for St Lucian students.
