Several Vincentian students are ranked in the top ten in the region in this year’s May/June Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) after having performed extremely well.
A release from the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) said that Ms. Abigail Scott was ranked number two for the CAPE Biology Unit 2, 3rd for Chemistry Unit 2 and 9th for Pure Mathematics Unit 2.
For Geography Unit 2, Ms. Thandi Myers and Mr. Daree Myers were ranked 4th and 6th respectively.
In physical Education and Sport Unit 2, the SVGCC copped four of the top ten places.
Ms. Cherice Roberts, Ms. Glenda Harry, Mr. Akinde Samuel and Ms. Shaniqua La Borde are all ranked 3rd, 4th, 7th, and 9th respectively.
The SVG Community College thanks the students, parents and lecturers for their hard work in the 2016-2017 academic year.
Special mention is made of lecturers such as Mrs. Jo-Ann Marshall-Thompson, Biology Unit 2; Mrs. Veronica John-Luke, Chemistry Unit 2; Mr. Wayne Young, Pure Mathematics Unit 2; Mr. Allanson Cruickshank, Geography Unit 2, and Mr. Roxell John, Physical Education and Sport.
The SVGCC said Mr. John must especially be commended as this is the first year that so many Vincentian students have been ranked in the top ten regionally for a single subject.
Last year, only two Vincentian students made it into CXC Merit lists. Abigail Scott was 5th in Unit 1 Chemistry and Richard John was 1st for Integrated Mathematics and 6th for Computer Science Unit 2.
