The administration of the 2021/22 Primary Exit Profile (PEP) for the sixth year will begin on February 22, 2022, with the completion of the aptitude test.
Minister of Portfolio, the Hon. Fayval Williams, made the disclosure during Wednesday’s post-Cabinet virtual press conference (October 6).
Sixth-graders will take the Language Arts performance task on March 23, the math component on March 24, and the program-based test on April 27 and 28.
The Grade 4 performance task is scheduled for June 29 and 30, and the performance task dates for Grade 5 students are June 8 and 9.
“It should be noted that alternative plans are also in place if the dates set for the assessment are disrupted by the pandemic as they were in the past academic year,” Ms. Williams said.
She informed that registration has started on the online platform and that it ends on October 8, 2021.
The fourth and fifth year PEP assessments, which were scheduled for the Christmas quarter, have been canceled, given the further disruption in the education sector due to the pandemic.
The exams were previously scheduled for the 2020/2021 academic year but have been postponed to the first quadrimester of the current period.
