Education is modeled on the British system.
It is compulsory for ages 5 to 16 and free. Students must take an entrance exam to enter lower secondary school.
At the end of the school program, students take the Caribbean general certificate of education or the Cambridge GCE. However, not everyone participates in the system as poverty and seasonal demands for the harvests prevent some students from attending.
We carry all confirmed dates till Aug 2019
