Sunday, October 12, 2008

AN INNOVATIVE window of opportunity has been opened for students preparing for the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE), Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), the Grade Nine Achievement Test (GNAT), and the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) through a partnership between The Gleaner Online and GoGSAT Ltd. Through this exciting project, study guides will be made available on youthlinkjamaica.com, gogsat.com and caribbeanexams.com. Together, these avenues will boost student access to online e-Learning and exam preparation. At the regional level, thousands of students and schools will now be able to utilise the system to prepare for their pre-high school, CSEC and CAPE examinations.

According to Shalette East, vice-president (operations) GoGSAT Ltd. “Caribbean students will benefit from the combination of GoGSAT.com and CaribbeanExams.com examination preparation capabilities.” Easy-to-follow examination lessons and tests for GSAT, CSEC and CAPE are already available for parents and students interested in exploring this online option. Marlene Davis, managing director, Gleaner Online, said that The Gleaner is happy to partner with GoGSAT Ltd. “This agreement allows The Gleaner to further fulfill its mandate to expand eLearning initiatives. For the last five years, the Gleaner Online has been working to encourage schools/students to explore the Internet with its Go-Local in school project – www.golocaljamaica.com,” said Davis.
