CXC exams in full this year

STUDENTS TAKING Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) tests this year will be required to sit the necessary three components.

And if all goes well, both the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations will begin on June 14 and end on July 16.

CXC’s chief executive officer and registrar Dr Wayne Wesley made the announcement yesterday during an online meeting of CARICOM ministers of education on the administration of the 2021 CAPE and CSEC examinations.

This change comes after the regional ministers of education and officials of the CARICOM Secretariat met to discuss the way forward.
