NGSA results to be announced on July 7 – Manickchand
The results of the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) are set to be announced on Friday, July 7, 2023, Education Minister Priya Manickchand announced on her Facebook Page on Wednesday.
The results were scheduled to be released on July 17 but that has now changed.
“I am very pleased that we are able to do this at this time.
“I know parents and teachers are very anxious about what September will look like for them and getting prepared for that date,” Minister Manickhand said.
She implored that whatever the results are, “you are going to be taken care of in high school. We really are on an aggressive push to make sure all schools are equal.”
Manickchand related that the ministry is working to ensure all schools are equipped with textbooks, adequate lab facilities, a library, teachers, and excellent monitoring to ensure teaching is happening.
“While it would be reckless of me to say every single school will have that come September, what I can tell you, is we are working very hard to ensure most schools have facilities in place to deliver a quality education.”
A total of 15,268 pupils were registered to write NGSA this year.
This year, for the first time, the assessment papers have been translated into Spanish to help Spanish-speaking pupils, many of whom are migrants.
