Going back the past decade, Cayman Islands public school students in Year 11 posted record-high pass rates in both Mathematics and English A on the 2020 Caribbean Secondary Education Certification exams (CSECs).
It was also the second time since 2011 that Cayman’s Year 11 students beat the Caribbean average in both Maths and English, in terms of per cent of student who achieved Level 2 or better passes. The first time occurred in 2017.
The Year 11 pass rate in Maths of 57% was 16 percentage points greater than last year’s pass rate of 41%, and was 10 points greater than the second-highest pass rate of 47%, posted in 2015.
The Year 11 pass rate in English of 83% was 8 points greater than last year’s pass rate of 75%, which previously was the highest on record.
Taking into account Year 12 results, Cayman students also out-performed the regional average in both Maths and English.
The Year 12 pass rate in Maths of 54% was the second-highest since 2011. The highest pass rate was 57% in 2018.
The Year 12 pass rate in English of 86% was the highest since 2011. The second-highest pass rate was 78% in 2019.
