Guidelines for the collection of SEA results

Results of the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) 2020 will be released on Thursday 8th October, 2020.

The Ministry of Education issued the following guidelines as the country is still observing health and safety protocols in light of COVID-19.

The procedure for parents to collect SEA results will be as follows:

  • Results will be disseminated from the Ministry of Education, St Vincent Street, Port of Spain to the respective District Offices on the morning of Thursday 8th October, 2020.
  • As is standard procedure, Principals will collect the results at District Offices for distribution at their respective schools from 8am.
  • Principals will arrange specific periods of time for collection of results from 10a.m. Parents/guardians are asked where possible, to adhere to the schedule given by principals.
  • Parents/guardians will also receive the SEA Information Booklet along with the student’s placement slip and performance report. This booklet contains frequently asked questions about transfers, querying results, interpreting the Student Performance Report among other concerns.
