Jamaican student score 10 ones in CSEC

Despite the debilitating effect that a sleep breathing disorder had on her ability to study, Ardenne High School student Dana Jones beat the odds, going on to attain 10 grade ones in the recent sitting of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate examinations.
The 17-year-old sat biology, chemistry, physics, religious education, principles of business, Spanish, French, information technology, mathematics and English language.
Last October, Jones was diagnosed with upper airway resistance syndrome, which is characterised by increased respiratory effort and airflow limitation during sleep.
The aspiring entrepreneur said that she started experiencing trouble with sleeping as early as grade nine.
