A total number of 451 students wrote the examinations in the May/June examination period in 21 subjects. There was a 100 percent pass rate in 14 subjects in the Unit One Exams and a 100 percent pass rate in 12 subjects in the Unit Two Exams.

  1. Congratulations to all the students and their teachers for their hard work also families for supporting their youngsters.

  2. Where is the people that was discriminating and making a big issue of the lawn party. Clearly our academics is at a very high standard. I believe Some Saint Lucians are very ignorant and fail to realise you cannot live your life how ever you please.
