Students have an extra three weeks to prepare for the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) examinations following Wednesday’s announcement of CXC’s decision to delay exams.
The decision follows several calls to the regional body from the Barbados Union of Teachers, Caribbean Coalition for Exam Redress, Barbados National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations and Minister of Education in Jamaica Fayval Williams to be flexible and postpone Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) tests as students were “ill-prepared”.
CXC Registrar and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Wayne Wesley made the announcement this afternoon during a regional media briefing. He says, exams will now begin on Monday May 23, 2022.
Dr Wesley went on to announce an extension for the submission of SBA’s originally set for June 30, 2022 by a further two weeks for both CAPE and CSEC SBA’s.
