Grade Eight scholarship to re-introduced

Deputy Minister Education and Skills Development Mohanlal Grero yesterday said that he had proposed to the government that Grade Eight scholarship (Grade 8) should be re-introduced instead of the present Grade Five scholarship examination.

He said that students siting the Grade Five scholarship have to exert themselves both mentally and physically and it was too much of a burden on them.

Due to those factors there was the possibility of the Grade Five scholarship being done away with, he added.

Grero said that since his appointment as Deputy Minister he had relinquished his duties at the Lyceum International School.
