Education Ministry’s decision to block CSEC results not finding favour with a lot of parents and students
The Education Ministry’s decision to block online access of the Caribbean Examination Council’s CSECresults for those students who were a part of that pilot project and may not have returned learning material is not finding favour with a lot of parents and students. And their main contention is the denial of online access may not have been done in a proper way so even students who would have stuck to the rules and have returned their books and learning material cannot gain access to the online results because the denial of access may have been done by full blocks to some schools especially those schools that were a part of the Mathematics and English pilot project.
The hard copies of the results for the students are expected to be available at their schools from this week but the ministry has said only students who handed back in what was loaned to them should be allowed to uplift their results. That move many parents seem to agree with but it’s the online access that’s causing a problem. Just last week the education ministry spoke about the need for students to returned books and other materials that would have been loaned to them during their final school year.
Guyana has recorded gloomy results in the main subject areas of English and math this year, recording a high percentage of students not being able to pass the 2 subjects.
