School of St Jude 2014 Greetings

Greetings from St Jude’s!
 
We are excited to have just started another school year at The School of St Jude. Kelvin is expected to enter Form 5 in May 2014.
 
At the end of Form 4, the students sat Tanzanian National Examinations in each of their subjects. These exams are often called ‘O’ levels and students are awarded a grade for each course they study. Each student’s best 7 grades are used to determine their personal score and those with the very best scores are awarded Division 1 and those with lower grades may be awarded Division 2, 3 or 4 provided they have done well enough to pass Form 4 overall. In order to continue to Form 5 to study for ‘A’ levels at St Jude’s the students are required to achieve Division 1 or Division 2.
 
Although the exams were held last November, the results are not due to come out until around March 2014 and this will be followed by enrolment into Form 5 in May. Until this time, our students are living at home waiting for the results.
 
We expect the majority of our students to achieve Division 1 or 2 and hope that they all will have done so, but we will not know until the results are published. When the students enter into Form 5, you will be sent the results of their Form 4 exams, the combination of subjects they have chosen to study and an updated photo, as well as a letter sometime during their first term. Please be aware that until that time, you won’t receive any correspondence regarding your Form 5 student.
 
Should Kelvin not achieve the grades required to maintain the scholarship at St Jude’s we will let you know as soon as possible and explain how the School will support them with their next steps.
 
Thank you so much for your continued support and please feel free to email us with any questions.
 
Kind regards,
