By BBN Staff: Across the Caribbean, students, educators, and Ministries of Education have expressed concern over the 2020 results of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) exams. In Belize, BBN spoke to several students in late September who were dissatisfied with, and were querying, their grades.
The Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) had issued a statement encouraging students to officially submit their queries.
Following the submission of queries from thousands of students and several official requests from Ministries of Education in the Caribbean, CXC’s Chairman, Hilary Beckles, rounded up an independent review team to “review the approach for administration of the July/August 2020 CSEC and CAPE examinations”. The team will also review the moderation process applied to the School-Based Assessment (SBA) and the grading process used for the July/August exams.
The independent review team includes Professors from the University of the West Indies, the President of the University of Curacao, and members of the Education Ministry in Trinidad and Tobago, and Antigua and Barbuda.
The team is expected to have a report for the Chairman by October 16, 2020.
