E.P. Yorke’s Bernice Ramirez Passes 20 CXC’s!

Bernice Ramirez

A seventeen-year-old 2017 graduate from the Edward P. Yorke High School in Belize City is beating all odds and making her mark in regional exams. While the official results are yet to be released by the CSEC Committee, it is known that Bernice Ramirez sat and passed twenty CXC subjects; twelve of which were challenged by the Saint Matthew’s resident. News Five found out today that Bernice made the decision to independently take on these exams to raise the bar.

“I feel very happy and very excited. I feel very great at accomplishing this great achievement. I actually made up my mind from second form that I wanted to take on this very difficult venture, but I knew that with the support of the EP Yorke administration, I would have been successful in this very difficult venture.”


Duane Moody

“I understand that you challenged twelve of these subject areas. Why did you take on this?”

“So at Edward P. Yorke High School, they have a very supportive staff and administration; that they help you from day one. If they see that you are striving and you are doing your best, they have no problem assisting you and so I said, I’m going to challenge these subjects. I know nobody has attempted this amount but I looked at a better perspective and I said that doing these subjects I know that doors could open for me to further my education.”
