Day one of the 2015 sitting of the Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) went off smoothly with all of the 1112 centres island-wide opening and on time.

 

The starting time was changed this year to 9:30 a.m. to allow for the abatement of smoke that rises from the fire at the Riverton City disposal site earlier in the morning. Although there was residual smoke at schools in the vicinity of the disposal site the administering of the examination was not adversely affected.

 

In Region Four (St James and Westmoreland), several students who had not previously registered for GSAT turned up and were allowed to sit the exam.

 

Today students wrote the Mathematics and Social Studies papers. Tomorrow they will write Language Arts, Science and Communication Tasks.

 

A total of 38,470 students were confirmed to sit the GSAT this year.
