All Students Eligible To Sit PEP Placed In High School

The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information says that 100 per cent of the 38,918 students who were eligible to sit the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) in grade six this year have been placed in high schools.

Portfolio Minister, Hon. Karl Samuda, reported that 80 per cent of the cohort was placed in their preferred schools, while 16 per cent was placed according to proximity. Four per cent was placed manually for varying reasons, with proximity of the school to their home address being one of the factors.
