St. Jean

Education Minister Petter St. Jean is refuting claims that the award of scholarships for entry into the Dominica State College isn’t transparent enough.

St. Jean, who was at the time delivering remarks at a ceremony to announce the GCE results yesterday, told the media that the criteria for the awarding of scholarships has remained the same.

“So even if a student get 12 ones and does not enroll at the Dominica State College, that student having written the CXC will not receive a government scholarship. That student must have passed at least 6 or more subjects of CXC at one sitting, with at least 5 grade ones and with grade one or two in other subject areas,” he said.

He said additionally, that student must have obtained passes in English and Mathematics with either grade one or two.
