Opposition insists PEP grades and percentages be provided in format used for GSAT

by June 18th, 2019

The Opposition People’s National Party, P-N-P is insisting that the grades and percentages of each student who sat the Primary Exit Profile, PEP exams, be made available as obtained before.

The Education Ministry has indicated that the results will take a different form, which has resulted in some quarters expressing concern.

Opposition Spokesman Reverend Ronald Thwaites says there is disquiet about the reasoning for the change.

Reverend Thwaites says the previous methodology allowed for an ease of comparison.

Meantime, Deputy Spokesman Michael Stewart says there is some confusion among the schools and parents in understanding the scaled scores that will be issued by the ministry

Reverend Thwaites adds that the education system cannot operate in a cloud of secrecy and has called for increased funding and resources for schools that received lower grades.
