Zachary Gill was elated to hear the news.

Top girl this year is Adia Jovanna Deane of St Angela’s, who is headed to Harrison College with a score of 249.24, and an A in Composition.

Based on the results just-released by the Ministry of Education, Gill also topped all students in Mathematics , along with Talha Mohamed of Al Falah and Khalil Vanderpool-Nurse of Charles F. Broome, who all scored 100 per cent.


However, there were no 100 per cent scores on the English paper as the private schools again dominated the national exam results.

    This focus on top boy and top girl syndrome needs to stop, all of the children were tops for me,anyway congrats to all including those two at the top.I however think that this examination places the students under extreme pressure and parents alike and it continues even when those who feel dejected as a result of not doing as well as the other achievers enter their respective so called lesser schools,the system needs examining.

    Why would anyone not want to celebrate top students? I teach 7 and 8 year old kids. While we acknowledge everyone’s achievement, we give credit where it is due. I took the common entrance exams, went to St. Leonard’s Girls and have been very successful in life. Everyone must strive to be the best they can be.

    Why must it stop Sherlock? Don’t we highlight the Victor and Victrix Ludo rum at every single school’s sports day?

    Why then do then do so many people seem to begrudge giving credit and a little glory to kids who are academically talented?

    Whether it’s sports or singing or a woodwork or culinary contest, we never seem to have an issue highlighting other accomplishments.

    But 11 plus always gets some people bent out of shape. Why? These kids worked hard. Why rain on their parade?
