The social studies exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The questions test the students’ knowledge of Belize’s past and present economic, social, cultural and political structure. Last year, the mean score in Social Studies was 68.92%. The mode grade was Excellent, an A, and the median was 72%. In 2011, the mean was 63.85%, the mode grade was C and the median was 66%. Students said that this year’s Social Studies exam was fairly easy.

The students sat the first part of the Primary School Examinations on Monday, March 18th. It included the English and science papers. The results are expected to be released around the first week in June. Last year’s top performers were Rhiki Alegria of Hummingbird Elementary School, Jasmine Betancourt of Bernice Yorke Institute of Learning and Ejike Udumii of Solid Rock Christian School.
