Headley gets 99 in Mathematics

Ajani Headley was today still racking his brain trying to figure out which Mathematics sum he messed up in this year’s Common Entrance Exam.

The top boy at the All Saints’ Primary School, who scored 99 in Maths and 95 in English, told Barbados TODAY he was generally pleased with his performance, but really wished he could find exactly where he went wrong.

“I feel good that I could be the top boy of All Saints’ Primary. I worked hard to become the top boy. My teacher Miss Jordan told me in the Common Entrance to remember her in my face telling me to check over.

“I decided that I would like to get a 90 in English as my goal and I ended up getting 95 and then 99 in Mathematics, I didn’t get the 100, which was a little disappointing,” said Ajani, who is his toughest critic.

Nonetheless, the bubbly student said he was glad to be following in his mother’s footsteps and attending Queen’s College come September.

However, the aspiring lawyer or engineer is not quite sure what to expect from secondary school.

“I now have to look at the extra curricular activities that they have, but I’ll see,” he told Barbados TODAY.

Raheem Denny, who emerged in Top 10 among the early sitters, said he was glad that his primary school days would soon be over.

“I didn’t want to have to go through Class Four again, it was hard,” the early sitter, who recently turned ten, explained.

Raheem, whose confidence belies his petite stature, said though he really wanted to go to Coleridge & Parry, he was looking forward to attending The Alexandra School in September and that he intended to give of his very best.

The school’s top girl, Saria Worrell, scored 92 in English and 83 in Mathematics and will also be heading to Alexandra.

However, she was away from school participating in a netball match today when the Barbados TODAY team visited this morning.

In her absence, Principal Keith Headley said he was pleased not only with Saria, Ajani and Raheem’s performances, but with the school’s overall results in the national exam.

“In my opinion there was an improvement over what we did last year,” he said, while pointing out that students who were held back last year, received special tutelage from the school’s Learning Support centre and that their averages had improved significantly this time around.

Class Four teacher Andrea Jordan also celebrated her students’ performance.

“The children performed credibly, they were lots on improvements. I’m especially pleased with some of the weaker students who really improved. I’m a stickler for the weaker students. You always like to see them coming up to build the school up. But I’m pleased with all the performances,” she added.
