MORE than 18,000 pupils will receive their results from the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) examination tomorrow.
A news release issued from the Ministry of Education yesterday stated principals have been instructed to collect results from the ministry’s district offices at 8 a.m. for distribution to parents and pupils at 9 a.m.
As customary, Education Minister Dr Tim Gopeesingh will be visiting the schools of the top three performing pupils.
This year, 18,239 pupils wrote the exam: 9,249 boys and 8,990 girls.
The exam, written on May 8, was marred by the suicide of 13-year-old Devindra Boodoo of El Socorro Hindu Primary School.
As a result, several organisations said the SEA should be abolished and even Gopeesingh had asked for suggestions to make the exam less stressful.
Last year’s top performing pupils all came from south-based schools.
They were Sandhya Sookhoo from Grant Memorial Presbyterian Primary, Kay-Lynn Ramlal from Tulsa Trace Hindu Primary and Troy Samlalsingh, a pupil of TML Primary School.
