A St. Ann based principal is expressing concern that a portion of his students have given up on the upcoming CSEC and CAPE examinations.

Principal of York Castle High, Raymond Treasure, says despite the best efforts of his administration, 10% of his school leaving students see the present school year as a lost opportunity.

Principal Treasure says some students have shown no interest.

Students returned to face to face classes yesterday in an effort to accelerate preparation for the exit examinations.

The Caribbean Union of Teachers has called for a revision of the regional examinations amidst fears that students are unprepared to sit the papers next month.

But Principal Treasure says the majority of his students are expressing optimism about the exams.
