DSC Students Excel Again
Students of the Dominica State College (DSC) achieved excellent results at the June 2013 City and Guilds International Examinations.
All 40 candidates, who took the DSC administered June 2013 City and Guilds International Examinations passed, setting a record for the college.
This is the first time that all registered students passed. What was also noteworthy was the significant number of high grade passes – 7 distinctions, 18 merits and 10 credits.
The top performers in the IVQ Diploma in Electrical Installation were, Delon Valerie, Dannell Alexis, Joseph Francis, Ethan Larocque, Dave Laurent, Eustace St. Rose and Joel Bedminister.
The top performers in the IVQ Technician Certificate in Motor Vehicle were, Henderson Bruney, Conrad Marvin Phillip and Luis Johnson.
This year, 21 of the students who took the exam in Electrical Installation were working adult learners who were given a special two-semester accelerated programme by the DSC’s Department of Continuing Education (DCE) in preparation for the examination.
Dean of Education, Merrill Matthew, noted that “the performance of the working adult learners is mainly encouraging, for it opens up a new door at DSC for uncertified trade persons to receive international qualifications.”
Dean of Faculty Applied Arts and Technology, Rawle Leslie, says these results endorse the quality of education and training that DSC lecturers provide and strengthens DSC’s resolve to be the leading tertiary education institution in Dominica.
