But faced with opposition from the union of secondary school teachers OELMEK, threatening not to invigilate the Modern Greek exam coming up next week, the Cabinet decided to postpone implementation of the GCE
admissions until the next academic year.
Perhaps there was not enough time to prepare the amendment and the government plans to do so by next year when the dispute would most certainly re-surface, as the union is unlikely to give up its demand to keep students with GCEs
out of the Cyprus University.
Some children attending private school might decide they don't want to sit GCEs
and want to go to a state universityC* We don't exclude anyone from sitting the Pancyprian exams," she said.
The university's vice rector was told by the presenter of a Sigma morning show that "you will hand over the university to the British with the GCEs
Announcing the proposal, the Chairman of the House Education Committee, Nicos Tornaritis said he was extremely saddened by the teachers' claims that no discussions had taken place prior to the University's decision to accept three per cent of its students with international exams, such as GCEs
He didn't enjoy his time there and left school, aged 15, with just three GCEs
Five years ago discussions took place between the education ministry and UCY regarding the admission of students with GCEs
I think mature adults who can't see the interdependence of social, political and economic situations should be sent back to school, maybe to sit one of Mr Gove's GCEs
Admit that not all children are equal and go back to the 11-plus system, grammar schools and hard GCEs
When the time came to lose the dreams and get a real career I didn't have a calling to do much of anything and as Pentrecwrt wasn't exactly a land of job opportunities, I went off to college 40 miles away and spent a very happy two years there getting my GCEs
A REUNION is being organised for pupils of Annfield Plain Secondary Modern Boys' School who started in September, 1958, and left in 1963, and those who left before taking GCEs
It doesn't matter if they've got any GCEs
against their name, they could be deaf and dumb but if they can get the best out of people that's all that matters.
