The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) has completed the processing of just about 80% (percent) of the Review Requests it has received for Caribbean Certificate of Secondary Education (CSEC) and Advanced Caribbean Proficiency Examination (CAPE) Examinations July / August 2020.
This was announced via a statement issued on Monday.
CXC stated that throughout the review process, it has strived to be rigorous and comply with its quality assurance processes.
“At this time, 80% of Requests for Reviews have been completed and we are working assiduously to complete the remainder. On 31 December 2020, final results were shared with CXC® Local Registrars and on 4 January 2021, CXC® will release grades to students via the online student portal”, CXC said in a statement.
The Regional Examining Body stated that it is committed to listening to and engaging with all stakeholder groups as it works together for the benefit of all stakeholders.
CXC is currently in dialogue with the Education Ministries across the region to finalize details for the administration of the regional exams in 2021. These details will be shared with stakeholders and published within the next few weeks.
Following the release of the results following the July / August examinations, there was widespread dissatisfaction with the anticipated performances and actual grades. This led to a number of regional Ministries of Education refusing to accept the results and called on CXC to review its marking processes.
