GATE Means Test Comes Under Scrutiny- UWI Guild Rep Questions Roll Out Plan

Education Minister Anthony Garcia defends the need for the GATE means test.

The University of the West Indies Students Guild is making it clear that it is not opposed to the means test arrangement for students who are seeking state funding from the Government Assistance for Tuition Expenses or GATE, however there are some concerns about the roll out of the initiative.

Recently the Education Minister defended the means testing system adding that the government has to ensure that the country gets value for money and high standards are maintained at the tertiary level.

Nikoli Edwards, UWI Students Guild Public Relations Officer, in a News Power Now interview on Wednesday, raised some concerns surrounding the means test process.
