By Aaron Humes: Following meetings, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) is to announce by Wednesday, May 26, its plans and procedures for its 2021 examinations.
The Council administers three such examinations at this time of year: the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), usually referred to by students and parents by the Council’s abbreviation; the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), for junior college and university students; and the Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Level Competence (CCSLC), a lesser-known companion to CSEC.
A statement issued Saturday night says CXC has been engaging with regional governments and other stakeholders on conception and planning of the 2021 regional examinations, and its governance committees comprised of regional representatives are reviewing the recommendations from these consultations and the Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) Council of Human and Social Development (COHSOD) 28th Special session on 12 May 2021.
Subsequently, CXC’s School Examinations Committee (SEC) met on Friday, 21 May 2021 to consider and advise on the strategy for 2021 regional examinations and on Tuesday, 25 May 2021, the governing Council of CXC® will meet to discuss and approve the final examinations and procedures for 2021.
There will follow a formal announcement and press conference.
Last year’s examinations were sat across July and August and the results were given a few months later.
