This year’s Barbados Secondary Schools’ Entrance Examination has been pushed back and will now be administered Tuesday, June 27.

In a statement the ministry of Education said the exam will no longer take place on its original date, Tuesday, May 2.

According to the Examinations Section of the METVT, the change comes as a result of concerns expressed recently by parents/guardians, teachers and principals regarding the previous date, as well as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years, which included interruptions in the teaching and learning environment.

Parents/guardians of children taking the BSSEE are, however, advised that all deadlines for the submission of information to the Examinations Section remain the same.
