[www.inewsguyana.com] – CXC Registrar, Dr. Didacus Jules says that writing 20 subjects is not something that the CXC officials are encouraging, since the Caribbean’s top student is not selected based on the amount of subjects a student writes.
Guyana’s top performer, Zimeena Rasheed wrote 20 subjects at this year’s CSEC, however while some commended her she was also heavily criticized, sparking a debate on how many subjects one student should be allowed to write.
Dr. Jules also noted that CXC does not want to put a limit on students’ ambitions. Meanwhile Dr. Jules congratulated Guyana for its performance at the 2013 CSEC Examinations. Guyana has copped 5 of the eight regional awards up for grabs.
The Registrar says Guyana has done consistently well in CAPE and this he attributes to the robustness of the Guyanese education system. CXC will host its regional awards in Guyana on Thursday December 5. The last regional awards were held in 1999.
