The Christ Church Girls’ student was 12th islandwide in the 11-Plus Examination –– the only student of her school to make the top 17 released by the Ministry of Education yesterday –– scoring 246.04 and a B in composition.

“I feel very happy . . . . and my advice to persons who are doing the Common Entrance is to work hard. If you want to go to a particular school, that requires a lot of work,” she told Barbados TODAY, before running off to hug and kiss the teachers for the hard work they put in to help her reach success.

Principal Heather Bryan said she was extremely proud of Abigail’s success and gave credit to the school’s teachers, even as she congratulated the hardworking student.

“I can say that the teachers at the school have continued to work extremely hard with these students; they went above and beyond,” Bryan said.

Abigail’s parents Desmond and Marie Davis said they were expecting their daughter to do well and that the key to her success was dedication

“We are so happy and delighted for her because we know she worked hard to gain this success,” her mother said, adding that she and Abigail had spent many sleepless nights to ensure that assignments and homework were all completed.

Her father also advised parents of children setting the 11-Plus exams to encourage their children to aim for higher heights and never speak negatives into their lives.

His wife, meanwhile, encouraged other parents not to pressure their child for the exam, but work with them.
