pseThe second part of the Primary School Examinations was carried today and thousands of students sat the last two papers which are social studies and math paper two. Following several hours of concentration, the students seemed more than content to have it over with. We caught up with some of them as they exited the examination center at Muffles College High School. Most of the students said the math paper was challenging while the social studies paper was easier.


Chris Urbina – Louisiana School


“I found the math multiple choice a little bit difficult but I think I’ll do well.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“Did you prepare a lot?”


Chris Urbina – Louisiana School


“Yes, mom”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“Any particular subject that you focused more on preparing?”


Chris Urbina – Louisiana School


“The Math”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“Were the other subjects were they at all challenging for you?”


Chris Urbina – Louisiana School


“No, mom the social studies was very easy for me and I am expecting a passing mark very high.”


Ashley Moreno


“It was easy but some of the questions were difficult.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“In which subject?”


Ashley Moreno


“Math paper two”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“So you prepared a lot I imagine?”


Ashley Moreno


“Yes mom, my teacher helped to do well and my mom too.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“Overall with all the assistance you got and with what you have gone through you think you are going to get a high passing mark?”


Ashley Moreno


“I don’t know”


Josue – San Jose Government School


“Some of them were too hard but the majority was easy.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“I imagine you are talking about math with the questions that were hard.”


Josue – San Jose Government School


“Yes the math had hard questions.”


Dalila Ical – Reporter


“Do you think you are going to pass even though it was a bit challenging?”


Josue – San Jose Government School


“I think I am going to pass it with a 72 because I was studying from Saturday.”

And then there are a few of them who felt that math wasn’t all that hard, especially after some good preparation.


Jenny Jones – Trial Farm School


“It was easy because my teachers prepare us for Saturday classes, teacher Juan Baeza and I thank him for his help and I am expecting a good passing mark.”


And so the examinations are finally over. The results should be known in a few weeks from now. Given their experience, the students had a few words of encouragement to those who will be taking the exams next year.


Josue – San Jose Government School


“To prepare themselves because some questions were challenging for them.”


The first part of the examination was taken on March 23rd. Compared to that time, things went a lot smoother today said District Education Manager Carla Alvarez, as not many children reported in sick. Among the 980 students that took the exam in the Orange Walk District, 21 of them were of special needs and were accommodated accordingly. To date, despite the need to improve in a few areas, the Orange Walk District has held the overall best performance in the exam.
