Waiting on CAPE schols list


Share post:

RESULTS FOR THE Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) have been  out since last Thursday night, but there  is still no announcement  of the students awarded scholarships.
What is known is that Christ Church Foundation and The St Michael schools, which introduced the CAPE subjects  two years ago with the first intake of sixth formers, did not perform  well enough to gain scholarships or exhibitions.
Reliable information suggests that, based on performance in the first unit last year, Harrison College was in line for at least nine scholarships and Queen’s College five.
Principals met with officials at the Ministry of Education on Friday when they collected the results, but since then schools have been hesitant  to release information about their scores. (YB)
