A total of 18,889 primary school students are registered to take the 2023 Secondary Entrance Assessment (SEA) exam on Wednesday, and Education Minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly is urging them to do their best.
The exam will begin at 9am.
In a video on the ministry's Facebook page, Gadsby-Dolly congratulated students, parents and teachers for "achieving this milestone.
"It, indeed, is a life-changing experience."
But she assured the students the exam is not "the end" but rather the beginning of their secondary school journey.
"...And we at the Ministry of Education look forward into supporting your journey in education.
"Go out there and do your best," she said, adding that it is "all we can ask of you and all we can expect.
"Your best is good enough."
National Parent-Teacher Association (NPTA) president Kevin David also wished students all the best.
"We will be proud of you no matter the results. Just do your best."
