Guyanese Sarah Hakh is CXC’s Most Outstanding performer
Six weeks after announcing her as Guyana’s top CESEC performer with 16 Grade ones, Sarah Hakh of Abram Zuil Secondary has been confirmed as the most outstanding student overall for 2012. Hakh’s award came as she has recorded As on all of her profiles. When the CESEC results were announced in August, Hakh was widely believed to have been the top performer, but this was only ratified by CXC last Thursday.
Two students from the Bishops High School; Tamasha Maraj and Deowaitte Narine, are also in the top winners circle. Maraj gets the award for the Most Outstanding Candidate in Business Education with 13 grade ones and Narine has the award for the Most Outstanding Candidate in the Sciences, she also achieved 13 grade ones. Karran Singh, of St Rose’s High School was adjudged the region’s best Candidate in Technical Vocational Education with 12 grade ones.
In light of the continued high achievement by Guyanese students, Head of CXC, Dr. Didacus Jules, had complimented the Local Education Ministry for what he described as a good job done with its CSEC candidates.
This year’s results which showed a drop in the pass rates for Math and English have evoked discussions around the Caribbean about the quality of instruction in the teaching of those subjects.
