Jamaica College students are now breathing a sigh of relief with their adjusted grades after being stumped when earlier Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) results showed that over 90 per cent of them had failed English A.
The Jamaica Gleaner today reported that the updated results have been heralded with great joy.
Acting Principal Wayne Robinson spoke with The Gleaner, saying the adjusted exam results show that the 299 boys who sat English A performed as well as expected, with almost all of them passing.
“We are all happy about these adjusted grades and are now just waiting on the rest from CXC (Caribbean Examinations Council) office. Our students would have been waiting on the corrected results to make their next move on to university or sixth form,” Robinson said.
Robinson said the school was awaiting the updated results from the other subject areas, which it has queried.
“We are still in the process as the date has been extended, so it will probably go on until November,” he added.
