LPSS celebrates success in IGCSE exams
Students of Lagos Preparatory and Secondary School (LPSS) have scored a 100 per cent pass mark across all subjects in the IGCSE examination.
The students in Year 11 made an excellent result, just as the Year 10 students also attempted one English paper and achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in the examination, which is the British equivalent of the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
According to the school management, the graduating Year 11 students had sat the Year 10 English IGCSE exam last year and attained A*, A, and B grades, with the lowest recorded score being 72 per cent.
Head of Secondary, Teaching, and Learning at LPSS, Mags Saba, said with the excellent results of the current Year 10 students, the school looks forward to more outstanding results in the coming years.
Saba said the students in Year 6 at LPSS usually sit the UK SAT exams to culminate the end of their primary education.
He said: “Each year, the students consistently experience 90-100 per cent pass in English and 80-90 per cent pass in Mathematics. This year, the school is unable to publish the results as the exams were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The school is pleased with our graduating students and what they have been able to achieve this year. Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, their hard work over the years has paid off and we are extremely proud of them. The school wishes them the very best in all their future endeavour,” Saba added.
He stated that the school is currently adopting measures to keep students and staff safe in a COVID-19 world.
“Subject to the Lagos State guidelines on re-opening of schools, LPSS is now equipped to offer blended learning (online and in class) from next term, allowing some students to continue learning from their remote locations until January 2021 at the earliest. The school looks forward to welcoming more secondary pupils next month,” Saba added.
