Guyana’s National Grade Six Assessment (‘Common Entrance’) Results 2013


The results of the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) written on 25 March and 26 March 2013 have been released to schools.  See the complete list below. 

Sixteen thousand eight hundred and eleven (16,811) candidates were entered for this assessment. These candidates also wrote the National Grade Two Assessment in 2009 and the National Grade Four Assessment in 2011. The results being released give a report on the candidates’ overall performance at the three assessments.             

A percentage of the marks gained at the Grade Two and the Grade Four Assessments was combined with the marks gained at the Grade Six Assessment in order to determine the candidates’ overall scores.  Five percent (5%) of each candidate’s Grade Two score in Mathematics and English, and ten percent (10%) of the Grade Four score in the same subjects, were added to eighty five percent (85%) of each candidate’s score in those subjects. The combined scores in Mathematics and English were added to the scores gained in Science and Social Studies.

      The attached PDF document of the Top 1% who were successful is the only information publicly released by the Ministry of Education.
      Individual Schools will get their results for release at their schools. You will have to contact the specific school or parent for detailed information on a particular student.

    It is such a shame to know that the top candidate got 548 marks and will be placed at Queen’s College since the cut-off is 525 and my nephew that got 418 marks were being placed at the lowest school on the Essequibo Coast (8 of May ) and when I inquired about it was told by the staff at the Department of Education region #2,that the child was being placed according to catchment area. What makes it even worse is that the school is nowhere close to his home and they are three other schools that are closer to his home. I think it is unfair for the kids and instead we move forward we are going backwards.

    Glad to know that Guyanese students have options if they can afford to pay for the cost of private schools. What about poor students who can’t afford to attend private schools and are stuck with their crappy public school? Guyana needs a voucher system. Maybe it will be more receptive in Guyana than it is in the US. I am a strong advocate for school choice/voucher.

    One of the greatest and oft repeated misconceptions about poor kids and academics is “poverty.” Poverty is the greatest motivator to succeed in life. When you’re poor, your only way out of your situation/poverty is through education. When we embrace and project the belief that poor kids are stupid or not smart, we subconsciously engage/interact with kids like they are stupid/not smart. Similarly, when we embrace and project that rich kids are smart, we engage and interact with them on a smart level. Thus the rich kids become smarter and the stupid kids stagnate. Don’t do this. Talk to kids and treat them like they’re smart and watch them rise to the level.

    There are countless research papers on this false belief. A very famous one took place in a California school where school children performing on the same level were placed with teachers who were told that their group of students were super smart, and another group of students were placed with teachers who were told that their group of students were low performing. At the end of the school year, the study found that the so-called “super smart” kids did extremely well while the “low performing” kids made minimal progress, reflecting the teachers’ expectations of their students based on their perception of their students’ intelligence level.

    Another interesting paper on this topic involving African American and African Caribbean students.
