    CXC says it will be working with the various Education Ministries to address concerns arising with the release of the 2020 CSEC and CAPE results.

    It has however refused to admit to anomalies in this year’s results.

    There were reports of students in T&T and across the region being “ungraded” in certain subjects, some received very low grades despite excelling in previous exams, and others received grades that did not correspond with their academic profiles.

    During a media conference today, CXC’s CEO and Registrar Dr Wayne Wesley refused to admit to “anomalies” in the results.

    However he insisted that the results released are just preliminary, and will be subject to change once issues are addressed.

    When asked by a reporter about anomalies in this year’s results, Dr Wesley had this response.

    Regarding SBAs, Dr Wesley said unlike previous years where only a portion of the submission were remarked or moderated, this year 100% of submissions were remarked.

    Dr Wesley also addressed the matter of “ungraded” subjects.

    Despite the issues being experienced however, Dr Wesley says he is satisfied with the service to students.
