    In light of calls to abolish the SEA exam, Government says it has not found an alternative way to transition students from primary to secondary school.

    This year, the exam will be held on April 2nd but demands that it be scrapped altogether have reignited after Barbados’s Prime Minister committed to removing their common entrance exam.

    However, speaking at a media conference this morning, Education Minister Anthony Garcia says T&T is not ready for such a move.

    Turning to the publication of results, Chief Education Officer Harrilal Seecharan says close to one-third of all students won’t have their results made public.
