Minister with portfolio responsibility for the ministry of education, youth and information, Karl Samuda, has declared the Primary Exit Profile PEP free of the problems that bedevilled its first official sitting last year.
Today, approximately 40,000 students will sit the ability test, designed to gauge their ability to comprehend logically. The curriculum-based test will be done over two days on April 23 and 24.
Grade six students sat mathematics, language arts, and science in last year’s maiden exams.
Mr. Samuda, who was handed the responsibility for the education ministry after the resignation of government senator Ruel Reid last year, noted that he was hopeful of improved outcomes over those in 2019.
He said work done at the ministry level indicated that all was in place.
