resultsThe Ministry of Education promised to release the results of this year’s primary School Examination on June 12th and that is one promise they kept as late this afternoon the results were made available to the media. This year a total of 7,551 students registered for the PSE. Out of that amount 7,245 students sat all or part of the exam this year.

 

The report shows that approximately half or (51%) of the students scored a satisfactory level of performance or better. This is up from the 47% in 2013 who scored a satisfactory level of performance or better. As in 2013, the mean score is in the adequate range at 58.4 which is slightly higher than 2013 when it was 57.8.

 

If we take a look at the performance of the students in the English Paper, approximately (51%) of them scored a Satisfactory Level of Performance or better (grade C or better). This is up from the 47% in 2013 who scored a Satisfactory Level of Performance or better. As in 2013, the mean score is in the adequate range at 58.4 which is slightly higher than 2013 when it was 57.8. The report shows that (27%) of the students scored between 60-69, a Satisfactory Level of Performance. This is one grade higher than last year when the Mode Grade was D. With the median score being 60; half the number of scores were below and half above that number. This is slightly higher than last year when it was 58.

 

In Math, approximately 36%, compared to 39% last year, of students scored a Satisfactory Level of Performance or better (Grade C or better). Similar to the situation last year, about 53% (compared to 55% last year) of students earned a grade D, meaning an (Adequate Level of Performance) or better.

 

Similar to last year, the concern is the approximate 47%, compared to 45% last year, of students who scored E’s, meaning 49% and below in the Inadequate Grade Range.

 

As the median score indicates, half the number of students were above and half below the median score of 51, compared to the 2013 median score of 52 in mathematics.

 

In Social Studies, 58% of the students earned a Satisfactory Level of

Performance (Grade C) or better. This is not good news though, because the numbers are down from 71% last year. As last year, the mean score of 60.2 (compared to 67.2 last year) is in the Satisfactory Grade Range.

 

And In Science, the largest number of students scored in the excellent range. Similar to last year, 77% of the students earned a grade C Satisfactory Level of Performance or better, (compared to 79% last year).

 

Of note is that half the students scored above 74% compared to

72% last year and half scored below.
