[www.inewsguyana.com] – More than thirty schools from outside of Georgetown have reportedly seen tremendous success at their ratings of improvement at the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA).
iNews was reliably informed by one of the few persons who have seen the 2014 NGSA data that there has been a 25 percent improvement by thirty three schools with respect to the students’ performance.
Today, the Ministry of Education will be announcing the results at 10:15 live on national radio and television and will also stream on the ministry’s website.
iNews was however unable to secure from the source, the names of the schools that the top performers are attending since we were told that such will be released later this morning.
The Ministry’s record has proven that more students in schools outside of Georgetown have been able to secure more than fifty percent of the marks required at the assessment which reflects a huge margin when compared to 2014.
When iNews contacted Education Minister Priya Manickchand last evening for a comment on the scoop she will not comment directly.
She however did say that the Ministry of Education would be delighted in success growth recorded at the National Grade Six Assessment since it proves that the investment by the Government of Guyana in the education sector is paying off.
This year the National Grade Six Assessment results are being released thirteen days ahead of schedule. The total percentage of each candidate would depend on a percentage of their scores at the grades 2 and 4 assessments.
