“In order to put proper quality assurance measures in place, the Department of Education took over the reins of this process and improved upon it,” Mr. Walwyn said.
He was answering questions about the supplementary exams from Andrew Fahie (R-D1), the former education minister.
“Principals were asked to ensure that teachers highlighted the objectives that they had covered and to re-submit them, along with multiple-choice items, to the Department of Education, so that the final supplementary examinations could be prepared,” Mr. Walwyn said, adding, “For this 2011-2012 school year, the supplementary examinations were set and marked by the Department of Education.”
The minister also said that this year no student was allowed to sit the same examination twice.
