In a day's time, 33,000 students who sat this year's Primary Exit Profile (PEP) will know their fate as the results will be made public.
Dancehall deejay Macka Diamond said this must be an anxious period for both parents and students. She is, however, encouraging the students that no matter what the result, they must continue pursuing their dreams.
"We all have dreams which we want to fulfil, and some students and parents will be disappointed. But this will not be the end of the game. You (students) will have more opportunities to prove that you can make it to the top of the ladder. Just put in some harder studies and chose those friends who can help you in achieving your goals in life," she said.
"When I was going to Holy Childhood High School there were others ahead of me. But I kept telling myself I am going at it harder to make it in my final exams," she continued.
The deejay's latest project, Dream Body, will be released on True City Global Production at the end of this month.
Born Charmaine Munroe, she grew up in Portmore, St Catherine. She shared how she got bitten by the dancehall bug.
"I used to stop over at Skateland in Half-Way-Tree, where many entertainers, including Sister Nancy and Major Mackerel, would perform. I used to admire their creative lyrics," she said.
Macka Diamond is known for recordings including Cow Foot, Hoola Hoop, Dye Dye, and Bun Him featuring Blacker.
