The Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) has announced it’s delaying the regional exams by a further two weeks, but is largely sticking to the original structure.
This despite the appeal from teachers unions and parent groups for some adjustments to take into account the school disruption caused by the covid-19 pandemic.
The Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and The Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) exams are now set to begin on June 28th. The initial start time for the exams was June 16th.
CXC’s Registrar and Chief Executive Officer Wayne Wesley in making the announcement also disclosed that the deadline for all SBAs has been moved to June 30th.
CXC’s Chairman Professor Sir Hilary Beckles explained the rationale for the delay.
