Matthew’s comments come on the heels of recent talks regarding a blog post made by local journalist Jason Sifflet’s, who brought the issue to the public’s attention.
The registrar for examinations who appeared on Radio St Lucia 90 Minutes (RSL) today said that following a review of the results for Lovell Motley, a student of the Monchy Combined School, her overall score moved from 87 to 96 per cent.
This now puts the student in the tenth position on the national list of high achievers. According to Matthew, the new result has been handed to the parents of Motley.
The error she said would not affect Motley’s placement, as she has already been assigned the St Joseph’s Convent.
Meanwhile, Matthew said based on the transparent system by which results can be accessed by parents and guardians, and teachers, this allowed Motley’s results to be corrected.
According to reports, the parents requested a review of their child’s Common Entrance result, as they were not sure it was accurate, given the students outstanding performance throughout her primary school years.
