  • by

Grade 6 students registered for the 2020 Caribbean Primary Exit Assessment (CPEA) concluded their final examination on Friday June 26th, 2020. Of the 1920 students registered, 1915 wrote the final examination: 959 males and 956 females. 

Students’ final scores were derived from the aggregate scores of both components of the CPEA.  That is, the External Assessment which consisted of Multiple Choice Tests in Mathematics, Science , Language Arts  and Social Studies and from the School-Based Assessment which comprised a Project, a Writing Portfolio, a Book Report as well as Teacher Tests, Pupil Made Tests and Can-Do-Skills exercises in Mathematics, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies. 

The preliminary results indicate that the proportion of students who met the prescribed standard was 1650 (86.16%) a slight decrease over last year’s 87.19%.  This number includes 780 (81.33%) males and 870 (91.00%) females. 

Three male candidates tied for the top position with an average of 97.8%.

There are 50 out of 68 schools that recorded a pass rate in excess of 80%.

CPEA Components: 

School-Based Assessment – 200 marks or 40% of the total score

External Assessment – 300 marks or 60% of the total score

The criterion for determining the required standard is that students must acquire at least 50% of the possible 500 marks.

The Ministry of Education congratulates all students and extends gratitude to the Headteachers, teachers and staff at all schools for their support of the students. We are cognizant of the fact that outcomes in education are measured, not only in quantitative terms, but also in qualitative terms; therefore, the value added to the lives of all of the students, the top performers as well as those whose performance can be improved, is greatly appreciated.
