    CXC Chairman, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles has promised a review of all formal reports made regarding the 2020 CSEC and CAPE results.

    At the same time however, he praised the organization for its work in administering this year’s exam despite the ongoing pandemic.

    In a release, Professor Beckles says CXC Registrar Dr Wayne Wesley and his team have met with regional Education Ministers to discuss their concerns and to identify the underlying causes with a view to moving forward and providing clarity.

    He says CXC is satisfied that Ministers have received explanations for its positions in light of the public discourse.

    At the same time however, he said while there might be policy and technical issues to be addressed immediately, the maintenance of public trust going forward is paramount.

    Professor Beckles assured that “each and every” formally reported case will be reviewed and remedies applied where required.

    He added that since a period of review and possible revisions will follow, “it has been agreed, therefore, that an Independent Review Team will shortly begin this work and present a report for discussion with relevant stakeholders.

    Regarding the work done by CXC this year, he said:

    “Management at CXC has been impressive in the delivery of the July 2020 regional examinations within the context of the COVID-19 logistics nightmare, and crippling global doubt about revised examinations systems and procedures. I commend the team at CXC for their effort to serve the best they can – the people of our region.”
