ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – According to a document seen by this news site bearing the detailed statistics of the results of the 2014 Primary School Leaving Examinations only eight primary schools can boast of having 100% pass rate.

Those schools were Agape Total Life School which had 8 students take the examinations, Bregado Flax Educational Centre with 15 students, Claudia Creque Educational Centre with 7 students, First Impression with 6 students, Robinson O’Neal Memorial with 12 students, St Mary’s School with 2 students, Valley Day School with 2 students and Willard Wheatley Primary with 22 students.

The data also show that 32.53 of the students who wrote the examinations passed with grade 1s, 51.73 with grade 2 and 15.73 failed this year. Overall 84.27 were successful at the 2014 primary school leaving examinations.

Michael Chen of First Impression who topped the Territory at the examinations this year with total score of 369.13 also topped scored in all five subject areas, however Guillaume Parkins who came in as second place for the Territory ranked number 7 in his grades for English language.

Jordan Blyden of Seventh-day Adventist, Johelly Marrugo of Alexandrina Maduro Primary, Angelique Lettsome of St Georges Primary, Antonillia Stone of Willard Wheatley Primary and Jhared Jones of Agape Total Life Academy all scored higher in the subject.

Scoring higher than the second place student in Mathematic were Hunter Christopher of St George’s Primary and Sanjay Singh of Althea Scatliffe Primary. Three students stood between Chen and Parkins in Social Studies; BVI Seventh-day Adventist’s Jordan Blyden, St George’s Primary’s Angelique Lettsome and Sanjay Singh of Althea Scatliffe Primary.

For Science two stood between the two Territory’s top; Nicklous Kanhai of Assemblies of God Cornerstone and their peer of First Impressions Nikolai Jagessar.

This year there were no students recorded in the overall top 20 performers for the Territory from Jost Van Dyke, Anegada or Virgin Gorda. However the Valedictorian and Salutatorian for the Bregado Flax Educational Centre Keishon Gardner and Angel Cupid shone among the top ten for the Territory in Mathematics and Science.

Gardner came in at number 7 at Mathematics while his peer Cupid placed 8th in Science.

Several efforts to secure a comment from the Department of Education to ascertain whether the performance by the students overall for 2014 had improved or not when compared to that of 2013 were unsuccessful.

What is the reason for the change?????

      Well well...I saw charcoal grey on my "note". Yours mentioned white? At least you got more info than me! And no description was even attached. So parents who have to spend their money don't even know what it look like. Remind me again why they are changing it in the first place? And why parents didn't have a say? Must be a damn dictatorship........

      It September 2014 is the time for the new uniform change. The way the note was written its like you are being talked down to waving their finger like you are being scold for something wrong. Mr. Minister I encourage you to look into the behavior of those who are in-charge of the school and get the problem fixed before school closes this week.

      My son attends this school and come September when school starts he is wearing grey and yellow as approved by the Department of Education. No PTA so I can't see how the uniform just change. I thought the parents who responsible for the purchasing of the uniform would be properly informed from the beginning to the school year.
