BBN Staff: According to a report from St. Lucia News online, a whopping 11,000 students from across the Caribbean region who sat the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) or CXC exam in May/June got no passes.

CXC registrar, Glenroy Cumberbatch revealed the shocking figures over the weekend at the official release of the figures in Barbados.

Cumberbatch lamented that the region might not be adequately preparing students to be employed or self-employed.

According to Cumberbatch, only 20% of the Caribbean populace get to sit the exam and of this some 13% pass no subjects.

Nevertheless, Cumberbatch explained that this year’s CXC results were actually better than last year’s with over 60,000 students sitting five or more CSEC subjects and 59 percent of them gaining acceptable grades.

Grenada reportedly exceeded the regional average by having 63 percent of pupils gain acceptable grades.
