Kayshav Tewari – 19 Grade Ones

“TRULY, I always knew it in my heart that I could do this, even though seeing my results still sends chills into every inch of my body,” said Kayshav Tewari, decorated with 19 grade ones, “I still get ecstatic even thinking about it.”

In expressing his gratitude, he said, “I would like to thank mother Saraswattie for her grace and blessings in guiding me to do my best.” He said his parents were his true inspiration, while his teachers molded him. He also had words of thanks for all his friends and colleagues. Giving advice to his fellow students, he said, “Excellence isn’t a skill. It is an attitude. When students set out to accomplish a goal they must believe with all their heart that they can do it. The moment one loses that conviction you lose everything else. Believe in yourself and have faith in God.” He also charged all his peers “to appreciate that as children of this great nation we must strive to put all our efforts to make it better.” He said that he would like to pursue studies in engineering and later on in life, philosophy.

IN HIS first year of CAPE, he earned two grade ones (one of which he merited to top the Caribbean in), one grade two and three grade three passes. This year he upped his performance by being one of the top overall performers, achieving grade one passes in 6 Units and 1 grade two.

Deenauth, when interviewed by the Guyana Chronicle, said, “I feel a sense of accomplishment, partly due to my hard work and discipline towards my work.” He expressed thanks to God and to his family, “for their undying support.” He attributed his success to his teachers, whom he noted where not only from QC, but Jamaica, USA and UK. He reflected that his life at QC was “exceptionally well” and that it has been one of his most important experiences. But he said his five years at the Central High School provided him with the “foundation to excel.”

As to future endeavours, he wants to pursue studies in Artificial Intelligence, especially in data mining. But in order for that to happen, he figures he will need a scholarship, which he is working tirelessly trying to earn.

No stranger to being highlighted for her academic prowess, Ashley Anthony said that CAPE was a daunting task. She said the exams were “manageable” but accredited this to her preparation. “Pure Mathematics was the hardest exam, and I was a bit worried about the outcome.” However, she managed to secure a Grade One in the subject.

The Queen’s College student said, “I would like to thank my parents, especially my mother, who at some points seemed more anxious than I was for my results; the teachers who worked with me tirelessly; and my friends who were always supportive.” She intends on furthering her studies first with a second year of CAPE at Queen’s College, and then on to a university. She is unsure of a definite career path, but said, “I have been exploring the field of biophysics.”

Not expecting anything less than the six grade ones she achieved from her first year of CAPE, the Queen’s College student and CSEC Regional Top Science Student for the 2015 sitting of the CSEC examinations, said that though Lower Sixth Form was “challenging”, she managed to successfully complete it. She expressed much gratitude to God, her parents, elder sister and teachers, who all helped her along her journey. She said, “For now, my next main focus is to continue my CAPE Studies to complete my Associate’s Degree in Natural Sciences.” She has also indicated that she will be pursuing a career in STEM but is yet indecisive of what career path she will take.

Shannon encouraged all future CAPE students to “remain focused and work towards the outcome you desire, no less.” While warning students to be efficient and diligent as the preparation time for CAPE is limited, she said, “Do not forget to take care of yourself: Sleep Well and eat well.”

I would advise all the poor ones to apply to Howard. It is the only place where they will find an enabling environment and where they won't be suffocated by the humongous fees.  Send them anywhere else and half will not make it just because they will not be able to pay.
