Every high school in the country tries to excel in various areas like academics, sports, Math Olympiad, Science Competition, among others. However, the biggest test of high accomplishment for any school must be in their success in the external examinations given to the graduating class - CXC now called CSEC (Caribbean Secondary Examination Council). This final exam given to the seniors just at graduation time is a rigorous course of study in as many as 13 subjects.
How do these examinations help students? Success in these examinations helps them to determine the course of studies they wish to pursue at Junior College level. Additionally, success in certain examinations will allow them to pursue these courses at advanced level in junior college. Furthermore, success in more than six subjects in CSEC enables a student to obtain a scholarship at junior college or sixth form.
This is how San Pedro High graduates of the Class of 2012 performed in CSEC 2012.
