Bitter Medicine: Aspiring doctors rejected by UWI amid space, tuition dilemma
The heartache of two brilliant Jamaican teenagers who have had their applications to study medicine at The University of the West Indies (UWI), Mona, rejected exemplifies the dilemma that many parents and students face despite eye-popping exam results. The 19-year-old duo, who attend two of Jamaica’s most prestigious high schools, have racked up a combined total of 35 passes in the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), the levers of matriculation from grade 13.
Dunkley, a recent graduate of Campion College in St Andrew, secured nine ones in CSEC and 10 grade ones between units one and two of CAPE.
Thomas, a recent graduate of Immaculate Conception High School, faces a similar predicament. She attained eight ones in CSEC. In CAPE, she notched six ones and two twos.
