  1. Only public schools?

  2. Morant bay high to the world

  3. What is absent from the above is the number of students who did not sit these exams because they were incapable of managing these subjects.

    • Totally agree with you. What about the quality of the passes. The report compare chocolates with cho cho. The report is incomplete to say the least.

      What is the agenda behind this report.

  4. What is absent from the above are the number of students who did not sit these exams because they were incapable of managing these subjects.

    • I do not believe that is an issue in this case. Remember, we are looking at the results of the percentage of students that attain 5 or more CXC paases (English and Mathematics included), as oppose to the percentages of students that “pass” a particular subject. The percentages are skewed in the latter case, where prescreening students who sit the exam, results in a higher percentages for these schools. The results shown are representative of population, since it is unlikely the students would have pass “more” subjects had they sit the exam.

      Some schools (I believe) have a minimum number of subjects for graduation (receiving a High School Diploma). The one school that I’m familiar with, require that in order to receive a High School Diploma, students must receive a minimum of 4 CXC passes. I don’t think the students have to pass Mathematics and English as part of this requirement. This particular school CXC passes consistently results in only about 60% of the grade 11 cohort attaining this minimum and eligible for graduation, i.e, 40% leave the institution without a High School Diploma and do not participate in the annual graduation ceremony. If English and Mathematics were included as part of the graduation requirement, the number of students eligible for graduation would be much lower!

      As to the issue of schools pre-screening the students who sit the CXC exam in order to attain “high” (or higher) pass rates, that practice can easily be curtail if percentages are calculated based, not on the number of students that sit the exam, but on the total grade 11 cohort. We are seeing some schools forcing students to take Mathematics and English CXC exams only in the 11 (or 10th) grade, since this is the grade that receives attention when it comes to external reporting.

      • In order to evaluate the efficacy of our Educational System, we require all relevant information. This report is similar to the pnp so-called landslide victory if we ignore what percentage of the electorate voted.

      • I totally agree with Sam Sharp coz I know for a fact that campion only allows the most intelligent students to sit the examination under the “day school” umbrella and those who dont make the cut have to register with their evening school so this is not a true reflection of what is going on in the schools.. I got this information from a campion past student (ie someone who has been in the system n sees how it operates)

  5. Old Harbour high in top 50.

  6. I dont think this is correct because Merle Grove high school has an average higher than tha

  7. big up yuor self you better than KC and all the other scools that act as if they are the boss. but we this year is going to mash this up.morant bay high school

  8. We must also consider the fact that, a lot of students do sit these exams in 4th form as well. Some even from 3rd form. Example Math. So come 5th form, they do Add Math and not the regular CSEC. While some schools will actually force them to resit these subjects (if done outside of the school) to make the school “look good”, there are other schools which will not place this burden on the students. This system of rating in my opinion, therefore has its flaws and may not be a true assessment of what is actually happening in a particular school. For the record, my school is in the top 3, but I do know that this is what happens elsewhere.

  9. MBBS the bomb

  10. The results are not complete and does not give the true picture for the overall performance of the schools. I cannot help but think that there is politics involved. What about the schools where students are passing the subjects before fifth form and are encouraged to do so. The results should require all subjects passed by students up to CSEC. I know I have children in 3 of the top ten schools and The order of ranking the 3 schools are inverted and wrong. It is so disappointing how we sometimes do things in this country. The results should list the constraints to the report which is incomplete and does not reflect the full picture.

    One critical factor left out is the quality of passes. No weighting has been added to this which is also reflective of where the students entered the school and where they are leaving.

    • Ardenne High School has been in the top ten for maths and english for many years. According to Education2020, in 2013 the school had the third highest passes for maths and the fifth highest passes for English. Furthermore, this ranking did not take into sufficient account population size and its impact on a school’s percentage. However, I won’t take it too seriously, because schools like Alpha, Georges and Morant Bay are nowhere near Ardenne’s level of academic achievement.

      • The 2013 Ranking had Ardenne at No. 6 (93.2%) position, while the 2014 ranking drops your school position to No. 19 (86.6%). Now the school rankings should not be taken seriously? Interesting that you had nothing negative to say about the process when your school was ranked much higher a year ago?

        I fail to see how population size per school (total 11 grade cohorts) has anything to do with pass percentages. Do you care to explain, statistically, how the outcomes (% students gaining 5 or more CXC passes) would be any different based on their respective population size? Are you saying that Immaculate Conception High percentages would be lower, if say their total 11-grade cohort population was 3X versus let say X. I think you might make a better argument if you stated that schools like Immaculate Conception High consistently gets the top GSAT students and their CSEC results mirror that fact!

        Bare in mind that the percentages is based on the TOTAL 11 grade cohorts, not the total number of students who “took” a particular subject. Also, the data seem to factor in the total results per student, not the actual exam results for a particular year. In other words, if a student passed English in 10th grade (4th form), that pass is counted towards the 5 or more passes for that student at the end of the grade 11.

        • Jeff, you don’t know the methods this pseudo-group used to arrived at its findings so we cannot conclusively state that this report is factual. Furthermore, Ardenne gets the third highest gsat scores after Immaculate. In 2012 Ardenne had the fourth highest number of students getting at least 8 ones and in 2013, Ardenne also had the second highest number of students receiving top placement for various subjects in the Caribbean and Jamaica at the csec level. At some of these schools if you are not very bright, you are only required to do 5 subjects, most times easy ones. You can believe the ranking, but it is utter garbage

      • Morant bay high is the best school ever

  12. Did u knw that they contacted the schools to verify the data unlike last year , what if ardenne just had a bad year ? 2013 was a bad year for wolmers boys at 15. And where u get ur info from? Ardenne was never always behind campion and immac, all students who pass for wolmers averages are in the 90’s just like ardenne .
    ,

  13. Can I have the link to that document ?

  14. People there is no reason to complain Manning’s school congrats

  15. Let us not comp[ain too much. Our children need to pay more attention to their education. Too many of them are distracted or have adverse situations which are preventing them from doing their lessons well.

  16. Would former JTA presidents and current principals Paul Adams and Clayton Hall comment on their stewardship at Herbert Morrison and Spanish Town respectively/? Doesn’t seem as if those schools are in session!!!

    • The JTA is part of the educational mafia. They do not care about the proper education of our children. Most of the highs are a dismal failure, with the schools ranked from 42-161 failing more than 50% of their student population. In some countries, a lot of these schools would be shut down. A lot of our High School Teachers should not be in the classroom. They were poor students themselves and I find it unbelievable to see some of my High School peers who were academically slow learners who eventually became trained Teachers.

      To be fair though, most of the children entering these lower tiered schools are ill-prepared to enter the Secondary School System. The poor performance of these students in High School can be traced back to the primary school level. We need to focus our attention at the Early Childhood and Primary School System. By the time these students hit the secondary schools, their faith is already sealed. Most of these students have very little impetus to learn and many simply go through the motions of just attending High School for 5-years, oblivious as to what they will do once out of High School. Once they are forced out the door, they spend their parents hard earned money attempting CXCs at private institutions for many years. Any student can get a good education at any of the 161 High Schools in Jamaica. It does require a certain level of personal responsibility, drive and dedication. Some amount of self-study will be required, as some of these Secondarr School Teachers are just plain lazy.

      Looking at the ranking and percentages, it is clear we have a crisis on our hands. We need to mobilize the parents of these students to get them to be more involved in the education of our students. Most students have no clue of the importance of a “good” secondary school education until it is too late. The relative ranking of the top 20 or so schools is not that important to me. The problem are those 100+ schools with less than 30% of 11-grade cohorts leaving with less than 5 CXCs.

  17. The flaw i have with this study is that CXC is not the only school leaving exam. I t may be the only one that all schools in Jamaica do but it is not the only one. What about the students who sit City and Guilds or NVQ-J exams and matriculate into VTDI, UTech, HCIT or into the new colleges created just recently by the HEART Trust ? Don’t they have subjects too including math and English, just a different examining body. These people are also work ready and internationally recognized, something sitting 50 csec subjects cant do. So why aren’t these terminal exams factored into the study.
