Posted by Investt

The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), the governing body for secondary school examinations throughout the Caribbean, reports that Trinidad and Tobago has made a clean sweep of the top awards for 2012, claiming first spot in eight of nine categories.

According to a CXC statement, Trinidad also claimed the top prize in science, business studies, technical studies, mathematics, modern languages and the humanities.

These results are typical. Trinidadian students have been dominating the CXC examinations for years before making the transition to free tertiary education at institutions like the University of Trinidad and Tobago, the University of the West Indies, and the College of Science, Technology and Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago.

The net benefit to foreign investors is a literacy rate north of 99 per cent and a capable and qualified group eager to join the workforce.
