Permanent Secretary for Education, Doctor Anjeela Jokhan has revealed that external examinations for Year 12 and 13 students are most likely to be held early next year.

Jokhan says with students starting to receive their first jab from Monday, they will be given weeks of preparation before they sit for their exams.

She says they will not just bring the students and get them to sit for exams because the Ministry is mindful that not every student has done the same work despite being provided study materials.

Jokhan says the whole idea of bringing students back is to ensure that everybody is on the same page before they sit for exams.

When questioned if students in other years will progress to the next grade or will they have to repeat, Jokhan says they are still looking at several options.

She says they have already revealed that they are looking at a 4 term year which means that students come in term one and revise difficult concepts.
