Published:Wednesday | March 21, 2012 | 12:00 AM

The Gleaner, through its Youthlink product, will again provide face-to-face assistance to students sitting this year's Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) mathematics and English language exams.

The Youthlink CSEC Seminar is a very popular annual one that increases the confidence of the students who are about to sit the CSEC examinations and teaches them strategies to earn the best grades on the examination. Starting tomorrow, markers of these examinations will be providing the students with the best opportunity to succeed at the examination. Students will be shown the best practices in studying in the subject area, common errors to avoid, concepts/topics that recur annually or are central to the subject area. The lecturers will also be responding to questions posed by the students at each session.

There will be two seminars in the western region (Montego Bay and Savanna-la-Mar) and one seminar in Kingston.

The English sessions begin at 9 a.m. and the mathematics session at noon. Each session lasts for two hours. Godfrey Fisher will be leading the English sessions and Howard Atkins, the mathematics sessions.

In addition, the students who attend the Kingston seminar will also be exposed to The Mico University's Research Day activities on March 28.

In commenting on the programme, Karin Cooper, The Gleaner's manager, business development and marketing, said: "Our young people are our most valuable assets and our most vulnerable resources. The Gleaner will continue to support their development through its education and youth development programmes."
