Top local performer of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Exams Dennis L. Guye of the St Mary’s Academy has advised students to begin preparations for the exams well before their due date in order to attain exceptional scores.
Guye, who spoke to Dominica News Online, attributed his success to advance preparation for the exams.
The 17 year-old Castle Comfort resident scored nine ones and a two in the assessment. Among the subjects he studied were Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Principles of Business, Principles of Accounts, Geography, Literature and French.
“I started preparing for CXC since around Easter. So I didn’t have to study as hard immediately before the exams…” he said.
“Prepare for the exams long before you know you have it. Don’t wait until you have a test today for you to go and rush to study, that wouldn’t work. If you have any friend who does well try and get some help from them,” he recommended.
Guye told DNO that his dream is to become a cardiologist.
Two other SMA students –Denis F. Laurent and Liam K.P. Rolle -both having obtained nine grade 1s, closely followed Guye.
Denzel E. Coipel of the Dominica Grammar School came in 4th with eight grade 1s, one grade 2 and one grade 3. Yende Grell of the Convent High School got eight 1’s and one 2 while Karyntia Joseph of the same school had the identical scores.
