An analysis of the CXC May/June 2009 reveals that all government high schools recorded 100% passes in Electronic Document Preparation & Management

(EDPM), Integrated Science and Physical Education. Extremely strong performances were recorded by all schools in Clothing & Textiles, Food & Nutrition, Information Technology, Principles of Accounts, Principles of Business, Biology, Physics, Electrical & Electronic Technology, Home Economics Management, Technical Drawing, Visual Arts and Woodwork. Mathematics was the only subject which recorded a below 50%pass rate; however, it should be noted that most students with an aptitude for the subject would have passed prior to the May/June 2009 Examinations. The strong passes in the CXC January 2009 Examinations bears testimony to this. Bowen said "The TCI National Awards Committee wishes to use this opportunity to congratulate our 2009 graduates across the nation for exhibiting such an exceptional performance. Special words of gratitude are also in order for our hard working teachers and administrators who prepared our students. Your hard work and perseverance have made us all proud." All 2009 high school graduates who have obtained five (5) or more passes during their final two years are encouraged to attend the CXC Awards Ceremony on December 11, 2009. Invitation letters may be obtained from your respective schools.
