Time to kick back, relax
AND NOW THE WAIT begins.
After yesterday’s Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Exam, commonly called the 11-Plus, more than 3 000 young ones began the nerve-wracking interval before the results are known in another month or so.
They celebrated clearing the first hurdle with outings to restaurants, sports bars, hotels, the beach and other places of entertainment. One parent at Coleridge and Parry School in St Peter presented the pupils there with cupcakes after the exam.
