By Aaron Humes: According to the Jamaica Gleaner, Registrar of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), Dr. Wayne Wesley, has said students complaining about unacceptable grades from the recent Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) must address the matter with their local bodies before CXC can intervene.

In a press briefing late last week Wesley would not respond to questions on individual results, even those shared publicly, as they were “private.” 

The Gleaner quoted Wesley as saying he was confident that the various ministries of education would make public their requests for review but said there was no data presently on how many students had requested reviews.  

He emphasised that the results already issued by CXC are preliminary and said persons still have time to launch formal complaints. 

Wesley did say in response to one question that it was “not possible” that a student received a grade six on a six-point scale though achieving straight A profiles in the various subject areas and that this had been verified through internal checks. 

Jamaica’s Ministry of Education, said the Gleaner, had written to CXC Chairman and vice-chancellor of the University of the West Indies Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, requesting an investigation into anomalies brought to its attention, including how results were sent to students before they were sent to schools and the ministry itself. 

After some delay the CAPE and CSEC exams were held in mid-July, long after the usual time period of April to May due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which also shut most schools in the region early.
