1,076 students to sit G6NA this week

taking examThe Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development will administer the annual Grade Six National Assessment (G6NA) this week. 1076 students, 542 girls and 534 boys, are set to write the exams on Thursday May 28 and Friday May 29, 2015.

This number represents a slight increase over 2014 when 1067 students wrote the exam.

The examinations are scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m., following an assembly at 7:45, at 50 centers around the island.

On day 1, students will write Language Arts and Social Studies, and Mathematics and Science on day 2.

Except for the Language Arts paper, all exams will be a single multiple-choice paper.

The Language Arts however, will consist of multiple choice and composition papers.

The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development advises parents that they are not allowed at testing centers while the examinations are in progress and should refrain from applying undue pressure on students during the days leading up to the exams.

    I pray God’s blessings guidance and protection on them all.
    In the name of Jesus I rebuke every wicked plan of the enemy. I pray against confusion..
    against memory loss……against fright. …..against nervousness.
    Father God I pray that your will be done in them now and always in the name of your
    precious son Jesus Christmas. Amen.

    Subjecting young children to the pressure of this type of assessment is, to my mind, a form of child abuse.

    Good luck students. This is not considered an increase in the number of students since it falls within the +/- 10 range.

    Why have an exam to assess students when children learn different ways, you all must stop indoctrinating our children? No wonder we don’t excel in mathematics and art.
