Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley has wished the 3,401 students set to write the Barbados Secondary Schools Entrance Examination (BSSEE) tomorrow, Wednesday, July 28, all the best.
Speaking at a press conference following a lengthy meeting of the Social Partnership, Prime Minister Mottley said: “I just want to say to all of the students who can hear me tonight or tomorrow morning that I wish you all the very best in this Common Entrance Exam.
“I am aware that this has been an extremely challenging year for many of you but I just want you to do your best. Don’t mind anything else because this exam is not going to determine your future alone; there will be other things that will help you even if you don’t do how you would like to be able to do.”
Noting that the last 16 to 17 months had been perhaps one of the most challenging periods not just for them, but adults as well, the Prime Minister added: “So, I just want you, all the boys and girls, tomorrow to do your best and to know that however you do that we are still going to love you and take care of you whenever the results come back. And, go into that exam knowing that all you need to do is the best that you can do tomorrow, that’s all!
One thousand six hundred and eighty girls and 1,721 boys are registered to write the exam at 22 secondary schools and the Barbados Community College.
