first_imgCome two months after 14,500 students wrote the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) examination at schools across the country, the anticipation of those student as well as their parents will soon end as the Education Ministry is scheduled to release the results next Tuesday (July 5).According to a statement from the Ministry, the marking of all NGSA papers has been completed and the examination scripts are currently being processed nationally. The Ministry assured that all systems are in place to guarantee the release of the results on that day.Some 14,500 students from across Guyana wrote the NGSA on April 27 and 28, this year, more than three weeks later than previous years.The Education Ministry had explained that the dates were extended to allow teachers sufficient time to complete the Grade Six curriculum and give students additional time within which to prepare for their final assessment.NGSA is a placement examination offered at the end of the primary education cycle to determine which secondary school students will be allotted.During the two-day examinations period, the students were assessed in four subject areas: English Language, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.On the first day, English Language and Science were written, while student wrote Mathematics and Social Studies on the second day. Each subject had two papers. Paper Two was the first paper written and consisted of essay-type questions, while Paper One consisted of multiple choice questions.However, prior to this, students had to write the National Grades Two and Four Assessments, back in 2012 and 2014 respectively. A percentage of the marks from all three assessments will be calculated to determine the overall performance of each student.Last year, some 15,225 students wrote the NGSA examination. Their overall performances were calculated by adding five per cent of each candidate’s Grade Two scores in Mathematics and English, and 10 per cent of the Grade Four score in the same subjects. This was then added to a further 85 per cent of each candidate’s score in those subjects at the Grade Six Assessment.The combined scores in Mathematics and English were then added to the scores gained in Science and Social Studies.The 2015 NGSA top student was Solomon Cherai, of Success Elementary, who topped the country after he secured a total of 530 marks out of 535. Meanwhile, his classmate Shania Eastman came in second with 529 marks.last_img

The Warriors face the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday in Oakland. (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez)OAKLAND, Calif. — Golden State forward Andre Iguodala will miss Game 1 of the NBA Finals as he recovers from a bone bruise in his left knee that cost him the last four games of the Western Conference finals.Iguodala’s absence is a huge blow to the Warriors’ defense as it works to stop LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Golden State coach Steve Kerr said several players will be called upon Thursday to handle the load that is James, making his eighth straight finals appearance.ADVERTISEMENT Kevon Looney has been starting in Iguodala’s place.Looney planned to talk to Iguodala about the task of guarding James.“I’ll pick his brain about some things … some tendencies of LeBron, the fact of the switches or small things like that to help me out,” Looney said. “He’s one of the best defenders in the league.”That’s why everybody on the Warriors realizes it will be a joint effort guarding James.“What he brings to us on the defensive end will definitely be missed,” Green said. “But it just means other guys have got to step up. Other guys have done that thus far. The task gets even harder but I know guys will and it will be a collective effort in hopes that we keep trekking along until he’s ready to come back.”ADVERTISEMENT Winfrey details her decision to withdraw from Simmons film Dave Chappelle donates P1 million to Taal relief operations Forward Kevin Love’s status for Cleveland remained unclear as he continues to go through the NBA’s concussion protocol. Love was injured in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals against Boston that the Cavs pulled out in seven. He wasn’t scheduled to attend media day Wednesday at Oracle Arena, where the Warriors host the series opener in the fourth straight finals meeting between the rivals.“He’s going to go do some things today and see how he feels,” Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said. “But he is in the protocol still, so we’ll see how he feels.”Both teams practiced Wednesday on Golden State’s home floor, where the defending champions have won 17 of their last 18 postseason games.James certainly understands what the Warriors are missing without Iguodala’s presence and athleticism.“First of all he has very, very quick hands,” James said. “That doesn’t get talked about a lot, his ability to read and react to the ball either in flight or while you’re dribbling or when you pick the ball up.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next A win, finally “He was MVP of the series in 2015, largely because he took that role on of guarding LeBron. But also because of what he did offensively,” Kerr said. “He’s doing a little bit better today. Some encouraging signs, but we have ruled him out for Game 1. We’ve got lots of guys who can take on that job. It’s a group effort, anyway, guarding LeBron. So, KD (Kevin Durant), Draymond (Green), Klay (Thompson), Shaun Livingston, they’ll all see time on him.”The Warriors said Iguodala, who was injured in Game 3 against the Rockets on May 20, was evaluated Tuesday and is making progress but still has the bruise and inflammation of the nerve surrounding his knee.
