One of the graduation requirements as stipulated by the Ministry of Education for each student is to pass an Exit Proficiency Examination (EPE) in Mathematics and English. Here are the details of these examinations:
• The examinations are designed to test basic competencies that a student should have when they are graduating from high school.
• Students receive no objectives for these examinations. It is not intended that any extra preparation is needed for these exams.
• The Mathematics EPE is a multiple choice test and a silent calculator can be used.
• The English EPE is comprised of two sections: a multiple choice section based on English Usage (Grammar, Vocabulary, and Spelling) and a writing section comprising of writing (Composition) activities.
• In order to pass these exams, students must get 55% or more on each exam
• Students can sit the Mathematics or English EPE for up to 3 years, beginning with their first sitting. The EPE is offered twice each school year (November and March).
