St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): Eight Law students at the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) received Grade One passes at the Caribbean Examination Council’s Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) 2022.
The eight students are Zhiem Elizee, Tabitah Marsham, Mauriel Knight, Kiara Phillip, Kianja Pole, Ayodele Jones, Hailey Morris and Karyl Woods.
“I want to highlight these eight students who received the highest grade possible at the CAPE level under the CXC (Caribbean Examinations Council).
Speaking to a WINN FM reporter, Law Lecturer Mr. Azard Gumbs said the success of each student didn’t come about without challenges. He also said that he is proud of the entire class for their resilience and adaptation to the new reality imposed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.
“What I am extremely proud of is the fact that the students were able to do well regardless of the challenges experienced this year. We recognise that the academic year 2021-2022 we faced with COVID-19 and that was a challenge. As a lecturer, it was a challenge as well; having to adapt with the new reality. Of course we had face-to-face learning but sometimes too, the online learning. So to incorporate both, we had situations where there would have been disruptions based on the impact of COVID-19; and so to finish the syllabus, again was a challenge we had to meet. So, I am extremely proud of the entire class.”
According to Gumbs, the first Law class for the 2022-2023 academic year was held Tuesday night at the CFBC. The eight students who received Grade one passes in the recent CAPE Law exams were invited to share their experiences and tips with the new students.
Gumbs however, shared an inspirational message to individuals pursuing studies at the CFBC.
“I want to say to those who may be pursuing studies at the CFBC to persevere, to do your best, to be able to push regardless of the obstacles and continue what has been started.”
