The government through the Scientific Research Council’s (SRC’s), Science Resource Centre, has stepped up its social responsibility and is inviting students who will sit the upcoming Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) in Biology to participate in its virtual workshop on Friday, June 5.
According to JIS, acting coordinator of SRC’s Science and Technology Education Unit, Kavelle Hylton, says “given the level of concern surrounding this year’s CAPE sitting, we thought it would be appropriate to host this session to help students feel at ease. Throughout the years, we’ve always offered support to science teachers and students. Last year, we did a Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Biology seminar and the response was good, so we’ve decided to do one for CAPE Biology.”
She also said that the SRC intends to expose students to good exam techniques and enable them to feel confident and become more prepared, despite the disruptions by the coronavirus pandemic.
Hylton also said “material will be shared with participants, and the workshop is expected to last for one hour.” In addition, a past student who has sat the exam will be sharing tips on achieving a good grade.
This workshop is designed to reinforce theoretical knowledge through theory review and practice questions while motivating participants.
The workshop will utilize the zoom platform and will begin at 3 p.m. on Friday. Students or teachers who are interested are asked to register no later than Thursday, June 4, at https://forms.gle/DUatqWpvB3o4p2fSA.
