GSAT Exam should proceed.

There is no doubt that the problems at the Riverton City dump is a major one and will impact the kids in Kingston and St Andrew and parts of St Catherine.

I don’t believe that the rest of the country should suffer as a result of an issue affecting Kingston and its environs.

I am quite sure if St James had a issue, we would not even consider the postponement of the exam. I therefore believe the exam should go ahead in all the other parishes that are not being impacted by the events at Riverton City.

If the fire is not contained by Tuesday and if the air quality has not improved, then the exam for Kingston and St Andrew and St Catherine should be rescheduled.

  1. But don’t ALL students sit the same exam Island wide? If some students from unaffected Parishes sit the exam before others, how would the integrity of the exam be questionable, given that exam papers could be copied or stolen, giving a few, a leg up on the competition. Now, it is possible that these same exams could be compromise before the actual exam date, but the probability of that happening would increase significantly, if some parishes had access to the exam before others.
