All set for 11-Plus test today


Share post:

THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION has not publicly stated where the hundreds of children who normally sit the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination or Common Entrance Exam at Combermere School will write the test today, but all systems appear to be go.

Combermere’s Waterford, St Michael campus has been temporarily closed because of a number of environmental problems, and the schools which usually write the exam there have had to be accommodated at other centres.

Meanwhile, a number of students received some last-minute pep talks from political figures who made the rounds in constituencies they represent, or hope to.

Member of Parliament for St Michael North West Chris Sinckler visited Deacons Primary, Eagle Hall Primary and St Stephen’s Primary, giving the students advice and encouragement. (YB/CA/LK/RL)
