The results of the 2019 Caribbean Examination Council CSEC (Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate) exams, for Dominica, will be officially released next week.

An official of the Ministry of Education told Dominica News Online (DNO) on Thursday night that the results should be released by Monday or Tuesday of next week following the customary analysis of the information.

According to the official, it is expected that a national outlook of Dominica’s performance will be presented.

Social media exploded on Thursday with the breaking news of the outstanding results of some of the Dominican students. Dominican students were able to log on to the CXC Online Students Portal between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. to access their individual results.

The grades of two students of the Castle Bruce Secondary School (CBSS) who performed extraordinarily well, were posted on social media. Nia Belle captured 13 ones and Adicia Burton, who graduated as the CBSS valedictorian in July this year, got 11 ones. Other notable performances at the school came from Melisia Valmond – 7 ones and twos and Trish Sanford – 6 ones, one two and one 3.

The Ministry of Education official who spoke to DNO, cautioned that it was a bit premature to name the official CSEC top performer in Dominica for 2019 as that position will be determined by the quality of performance of the top contenders based on certain criteria. However, the official was quick to point out that the student with the most ones could well be the top performer.

And that must have been very much on the minds of Kalinago Territory residents, who organized a motorcade on Thursday night, to celebrate the performance of Nia Belle and Adicia Burton.

    since wen ministry taking so long to have a press conference. Ministry of education has preference when it comes to certain schools. if it was convent high school their name would be all over social media.

      This has to be the dumbest comment that I’ve read on here. Whether or not the ministry calls it now or later, is that going to change the number of ones that the students obtained? Additionally the ministry has ALWAYS taken these steps. It’s only seems slower this year because you must be personally invested.

      Neither UWP nor DLP did this, the young ladies did it on their own. Congratulations girls and to everyone else who succeeded.
