Govt to pay for CXC reviews

Barbados will pay for its students to get a review of their Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) grades, says Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley.

She made the announcement while speaking at a Barbados Labour Party (BLP) St George North by-election meeting in Market Hill, St George, on Sunday night, adding that Barbadians do not beg.

For several weeks students in Barbados joined others across the region protesting their poor CXC results which, among other things, took some of them out of the running for prestigious scholarships or placements at their choice of university.

In Barbados, parents, students and supporters demonstrated outside the CXC headquarters and in Bridgetown, and sent correspondence to relevant parties calling for a solution.
