With the results of the National Grade Six Assessment (NGSA) 2021 showing a drop in performance in Maths and Science, Minister of Education, Priya Mannickchand met with Grade Six teachers across Guyana virtually on Monday to discuss how the general performance of students could be improved.

The meeting is in preparation for NGSA 2022 which is set for July 6 and 7, providing that the COVID-19 situation doesn’t lead to changes.

Minister Manickchand told the teachers that work must be done to move each child from where they are now to a much higher level as they prepare to write the examination.


“Think of each student and devise a plan to assist each child based on their weaknesses. Our aim is to ensure every secondary school child is prepared for secondary school. Please look at your children with a different eye so that you can prepare your children to enjoy a better life in the future,” the Education Minister remarked according to a release from the Ministry.

She told the teachers that the meeting will not be the last of its kind as she believes that better outcomes will come if there is a collaborative effort.

To the teachers, she explained that the 2022 examination will be prepared like the 2021 examination covering topics up to the Grade Five level based on the consolidated curriculum. The teachers were also asked to make a note of the students in their class who need textbooks so that they can be sourced and provided.

She thanked the teachers for the tremendous work that they did over the past year and also during the years prior contributing to the development of Guyana by educating the nation’s children.
