(Trinidad Guardian) The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) is expected to respond today to a unanimous request by regional Ministers of Education for a waiver of examination review fees.
The request was made Monday as students and teachers across the region have queried results of this year’s Caribbean Secondary Entrance Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Exam (CAPE).
The minister making the request were from T&T, Jamaica, Barbados, Antigua and Barbuda, and Guyana.
Following a three-hour virtual media briefing hosted by CXC on Sunday, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley announced that her Government would foot the review bill of all Barbadian students who had made such requests.
CXC’s Registrar Dr Wayne Wesley had announced a 50 percent reduction in review fees, which is customarily US$30 per review, bringing it down to US$15 per review.
