‘Students should have recognised ratio’
By RACHAEL ESPINET Monday, May 13 2013
WHILE the word “ratio” was not in the Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) syllabus, students should have recognised the question in the SEA Math exam, because “proportions”, which is similar to ratios, was in the syllabus.
This was confirmed by Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education Harrilal Seecharan, in response to numerous complaints from parents and teachers on the controversial Question 35 of the SEA Math test, which left many students distressed during the examination last week Thursday. “I saw the question and the concern would have come from the word ‘ratio’ which is not on the syllabus. But the topic ‘proportion’ is on the syllabus. Apparently it was asked differently in the exam,” Seecharan told Newsday yesterday.
