      uh that number of students (who are all in the sixth grade ONLY btw) seems quite relative to Dominica’s population size. What I find surprising is that more boys are doing the assessments than girls; most times it’s the other way around.

    Best of luck to all of you. This may be a life-defining moment, so give it your best. But there will be other opportunities to define your future. At the very least, learn from this one.

    God’s guidance on all the children. Take it easy, say a little pray before your exam. Take a deep breath take your time and read your instructions properly. Don’t be over anxious, you’ll be ok. If you not sure of an answer don’t waste time on it skip it and move to the next one, however if you have time return to it. Try to go over your answers before you give up the paper.
    My little piece of advise. Best of Luck!!
