By Zoila Palma: The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) issued a statement today informing that in light of the challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic, and after extensive consultations, candidates will defer the sitting of the exams.
In 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the region, candidates also submitted their School-Based Assessments (SBAs) for assessments.
The Council explained that:
SBA scores can be transferred for use in the next examination sitting, where the subject is offered.
The rules pertaining to the reuse of SBA scores for resit candidates remain unchanged.
Candidates may also:
– submit a new SBA
– delay submission of SBAs until the chosen sitting
In addition, the Council informed that for the first time ever, it will accept SBAs in January 2022 for candidates deferring to sit examinations for subjects offered in that period.
Candidates can be granted the deferral by their principal of CXC local registrar for those independent candidates.
Candidates should indicate an intent to defer from the June/July 2021 examination cycle by 1 May 2021.
There will be no fee charged for the deferral of examinations.
CXC noted that deferral procedures have been shared directly with all Education ministries across the region.
“As we all do our best to manage in these uncertain times, CXC continues to collaborate with regional Ministries of Education and other stakeholders to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all stakeholders, and that the administration of examinations does not disenfranchise the region’s students,” CXC expressed.
