Wednesday, July 13, 2011  Two thousand eight hundred and twenty five young Saint Lucians who sat the Common Entrance exams last month, will  know their fate from Thursday July 14th  when the Ministry of Education begins releasing the results.


Registrar of Examinations in the Ministry of Education here, Philomene Alexander says a synopsis of the results will first be presented by Education Minister Honourable Arsene James before distribution to school principals.


“The Common Entrance Examinations has two types of questions - the objective and subjective questions, the objective component is what the students mark out on their answer sheets by shading the appropriate answer, the subjective component is marked here by mostly teachers from Secondary schools and after they are marked the scores are entered on the same answer sheet which the students had and then the results are processed in Barbados.    The Minister for Education is responsible for presenting the results and then we pass them onto the principals of the various schools and we are hoping that this will be done on Thursday July 14th.       I know some principals will go back and start issuing the results in the afternoon but majority of students will receive their results by Friday July 15th ,2011, ”lamented the Registrar of Examinations Philomene Alexander.


The Common Entrance exams were written on Wednesday, June 29th .


Students wrote three papers – English Language, Mathematics and a general paper containing Social Studies, Study Skills, Science and Health & Family Life.
