Share post:

Parents and stakeholders in the ministries of education across the region are continuing the fight for improved grades for students who sat this year’s Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and received poor scores.

The Caribbean Examinations Council today submitted a statement on the queries and reviews.

The statement follows:

“Bridgetown – The Caribbean Examinations Council continues to work assiduously to complete queries and requests for reviews, in order to finalise grades for Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) July/August examinations.

“We understand the psychosocial impact of the extended COVID-19 related circumstances and have heard the concerns of ministry officials, teachers, parents and students.

“These concerns are being addressed with further consideration of the hardships that students and their parents may have been experiencing. In addition to the requests for reviews which have been submitted, CXC, in accordance with the Independent Review Team (IRT) Report, has been reviewing borderline cases, in particular single grade changes, as well as the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects.

“This approach will help to expedite the process of reviews.

“We are committed to a thorough and speedy completion of the review process as we understand that the wait has been long for many.

“It is expected that this process will be completed shortly and we therefore request your continued patience and support as we carefully navigate this challenging period. CXC will provide a further update next week, via a media briefing.” (PR)
