More than 2000 form 5 students in Tonga sat their Common Assessment Task – CAT for the Tongan Subject this morning.


The CAT comprehension was broadcast live on Radio Tonga 1 to reach the outer islands.

This is part of the exams held prior to the national form 5 examination – Tonga School Certificate exam.


60 students from St Andrews College sat their CAT exam this morning.

Meanwhile, Paea Lama from Tailulu College says she is happy to be part of the exam because it helps her connect with the history of the country.
