The Gleaner's Youthlink Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) seminar series, geared to help secondary-level students with the formula to excel, will roll out today.

The seminar will be conducted by CSEC examination markers who are veterans in the business and thus will be able to help students to be prepared to tackle the exam later this year.

The Gleaner's Corporate Affairs Officer, Terry-Anne Wilson, said the seminars are designed to motivate students to be top achievers in the exams.

Wilson said since its 2004 inception, the programme has been well received by institutions islandwide.

The seminars kick off in Kingston at the Girl Guides Association of Jamaica Headquarters. The series then moves to Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Montego Bay, St James on March 29, and Sean Lavery Faith Hall, Savanna-la-Mar on March 31.

The main focus of the seminar this year is the core subjects, mathematics and English language, with lecturers Cynthia Cooke for mathematics and Godfrey Fisher for English.

The seminars are designed to complement the CSEC lessons published in the Youthlink magazine throughout the year.
