By Aaron Humes: The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) at a special meeting decided, among other things, to delay the start of the regional examination schedule to May 23, 2022, with results to be delivered in time for the new school year in September.
The Council reviewed feedback from regional Ministries of Education and recommendations from CXC’s School Examinations Committee (SEC) in light of the continuing impact of COVID-19 on our regional way of life generally and the education system specifically.
It was decided that the delay will provide candidates with additional time to prepare for the examinations. Official timetables will be published on the CXC website on Wednesday, 4 May 2022, and will be available to students in the Online Students’ Portal (https://ors.cxc.org/studentportal).
Additionally, submissions of school-based assessments for the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) will be extended by two weeks, and CXC will share with the Ministries of Education for communication to exam-takers the broad topics to be assessed on the written paper 2.
CXC had previously agreed to reduce the SBA requirements by as much as 50 percent in some subjects; extend the deadline for the submission of SBAs by six weeks, and provide an option to defer some or all of the examinations until either January or June 2023.
The Executive Management and staff at CXC support the Council’s decision fully, the organization reported, as it continues to work in the best interest of our students across the region.
