first_imgStudents who wrote the National Grade Six Assessment earlier this year will be able to access their results on July 3, 2019.Along with the announcement of the top performers, persons can view their score online with their respective candidate number among other details. This assessment marks the completion of the primary education programme and determines which secondary institution these students would be placed at.The two-day examination was written on April 17 and 18, covering four key subject areas. This year saw an increase in the candidates from 14,551 to 14,715.The NGSA performance is calculated by adding five per cent of each candidate’s Grade Two scores in Mathematics and English, and 10 per cent of the Grade Four score in the same subjects.This is then added to a further 85 per cent of each candidate’s score in those subjects at the Grade Six Assessment. The combined scores in Mathematics and English are then added to the scores gained in Science and Social Studies.However, prior to this, the students had to write the National Grades Two and Four Assessments back in 2012 and 2014 respectively. A percentage of the marks from all three assessments will be calculated to determine the overall performance of each student.Last year, Nalia Rahaman of Westfield Prep was named the top performer, having obtained a perfect score.last_img
