  1. St Lucian; maypwee; nombre before kids, weave nails , dance and western for the old grannies who left good men in their early days and now depending on kids with kids. and still going to western looking for man. The young on Tiktok in love with their below average face. Island politics of victimisation and do nothing government. U all surprised st Lucia not mentioned? And why cxc mentioning anyone with grade 11? Better scrap the award for whatever category if performance not up to par. Anyways, psycho Lucian’s. Just murder and dealing and drinking. A failed state. Those results show it.

  2. I know a child from Castries comprehensive, she wrote Mathematics and English in 4th form and got distinction in both, remaining subjects all 1’s. There are many more like her

  3. Here in St. Lucia the teachers are failing our younger generation. They are some good ones but they have no voice, how will you translate a country with such poor IQ to be ontop. Boballist country.

  4. @anonymous the parents dont help either…..combined with the comments from truth be told….weave and nails and clothes are the order of the day in this place…i could never understand such….i agree some teachers fail their students but the majority who help the students get backlashed from the parents in many ways…they dont assist with homework they dont help at all they depend on other people to help their kids and the list goes on……
