NGSA set for May 3 & 4 next year; results by July 11


Pupils all across the country will sit the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) on May 3 and 4 next year, Education Minister Priya Manickchand announced on Tuesday. 

Additionally, during a live video on her Facebook page, she said that the results for those examinations will be released about two months later, on July 11. 

Because of the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, including protracted school closures, the NGSA was delayed over the past three years. 

This year, the assessment was written in July and the results were announced in September- after the new academic year started. As such, this year’s batch of First Formers (Grade Seven pupils) started school until October. 

Now, however, Manickchand says that she is keen on returning to a normal schedule. 

“We don’t want you guessing, we want this to be as predictable as possible,” she said. 

Importantly, she highlighted that next year’s assessment will be based on a Grade Five consolidated curriculum but will include concepts from other levels.
