Gsat, Grade Six Achievement Test, is given to eleven years old in Jamaica every year where the results has high impact on the child’s further studies. The competition to reach top score is thereby hard. This has made the edtech-company Edufocal to turn the practice before Gsat into an engaging competition with gamified functions. The pupils start at level one in all subjects and besides the satisfaction in trying to reach the top of the leaderboard they compete for prices like movie tickets and mobile credit. Yes, and most importantly the pupils get engaging practice with immediate feedback before the important Gsat-exam. One of the investors in the business is Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship.
