TITCHFIELD High School recently lauded top performing students in the 2013 Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations.

The top performers who were presented with awards during the school's devotion last week are Bryton Kinlock, Dakota Wright and Janeala Morsby.

Kinlock, who attained 11 subjects with all distinctions, attributed his success to proper time management.

"The main one is time management, because I also do extra co-curricular activities such as cricket, mathematics club and I am also a prefect," he said.

Kinlock continued: "You have to make sure that you allot enough time for study. Moderation is key so you have a little fun, a lot of studying along with your extra-curricular activities."

He expressed thanks to his parents and siblings who supported him.

"Their support was very good. They helped me each step of the way by providing my textbooks and my necessities, they also alleviated some of the chores," he said.

Kinlock is currently a lower sixth form student at Titchfield where he is now doing four CAPE subjects -- biology, chemistry, pure maths and communication studies as he intends to pursue a career as a cardiologist.

Wright, the top CSEC girl who attained nine subjects with eight distinctions and a grade two said her biggest hurdle was time management.

"I had to know how to manage my time with academics and extra co-curricular activities and also socialising," she said.

She too expressed appreciation to her parents and teachers for the support.

"I want to say thank you; If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have reached this far," she said.

Wright is currently a lower sixth form student at the Titchfield High school. Her future plan is to study medicine or actuarial sciences.

Morsby, the runner-up girl for CSEC, also attained eight distinctions and a grade two.

Her family, she said, encouraged her all the way not to give up.

As one who is determined to strive for success Morsby said: "I have a motto 'don't put off for tomorrow what you can accomplish today,' so I try to do as much work as I can today and I study each day that I go home I go over the notes that I got from on the first day to the present day," she said, adding, "I don't only study for tests, I just study all the time."

Morsby is also a lower sixth form student and plans to pursue a career in medicine.
