Education Minister Myron Walwyn has been praised for the British Virgin Islands’ accomplishment in the 2017 Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) exams.
The BVI was ranked at the top of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) for having the most students to sit five or more subjects in the CXC exams last year.
CXC’s Chief Executive Officer Dr Didacus Jules lauded Walwyn for the accomplishment.
“Congratulations to Minister Myron Walwyn for his visionary and bold initiative in optimizing BVI’s engagement with CXC,” Dr Jules said on social media recently.
He said further: “I had the privilege of working with him and Permanent Secretary Marcia Potter to ensure its success against political odds.”
According to the CEO, BVI students are now “reaping the positive and outstanding results of this bold step.”
Walwyn had announced recently that 95 percent of BVI students sat five or more subjects including mathematics and English at CXC.
He made the announcement following an Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Council of Ministers of Education meeting held in Martinique.
