Exam worries

Salaseini Vosamana

A GROUP of Form Six students in Labasa did not sit for their Fiji School Leaving Certificate English paper because they were involved in an accident early this week.

However, divisional education officer northern Mere Fisher has reassured the students could always apply for compassionate pass in order to attain marks for their English paper.

"The exam supervisors can assist the students in their application and also a medical report attached to prove their condition," Mrs Fisher said.

"Parents shouldn't worry about the fact that their children didn't sit for their English paper because such arrangements can be made to help them pass."

Mrs Fisher also confirmed that a prominent school in Labasa had to postpone its annual examination as a result of the accident.

A few parents had feared the worst, knowing that a passing grade in English was a determinant in all FSLC passes.

Parent Raj Kumari said she was worried about her daughter's future as she was also not tested in another subject.

"English is the most important paper in any external exam and my daughter didn't sit for it because she was in the accident," Mrs Kumari said.
