BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – This year, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC®), like many other institutions, has had to modify its strategy for examinations due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Following consultation with regional governments and other key stakeholders from across the region, it was agreed in May 2021 to delay the sitting of the regional examinations by a further two weeks to allow more time for candidates to prepare for their exams. Exams commenced on 28 June 2021 and were completed on 30 July 2021.
CXC® wishes to remind its stakeholders that results for the June/July 2021 examinations will be released in early to mid-October. CXC® is working assiduously to minimize the impact of the delays occasioned by the disruption of COVID-19 protocols on the logistical operations associated with the marking, grading and release of examinations results.
The release of results will be a three-tiered approach:
• Firstly – Release to the Ministries of Education
• Secondly – Joint meeting with the Ministry of Education
• Thirdly – Release to candidates on or before 15 October 2021
St Vincent and the Grenadines
• Release to the Ministry of Education
• Release to candidates on or before 20 October 2021
The CXC® team is in contact with regional and international higher education institutions to communicate this timing to minimize the possibility of students being disadvantaged during the matriculation process.
