Aisha Trimmingham of the Christ Church Foundation School; Kianer Chewitt and Kali Grant of The St. Michael School; and Tracey Brathwaite and Danielle White of the Barbados Community College, also won exhibitions.
Mr. Jones said there was a possibility that a few more scholarship or exhibition winners could emerge after further scrutiny of the results or if students and schools asked for reviews, as allowed under CXC rules.
The Minister of Education explained that scholarship winners received all Grade Ones at the CAPE level, with an “A” profile, while those receiving exhibitions received the majority Grade Ones.
