Issues for the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) continue as this week test papers in Jamaica were reportedly stolen.
A statement from CXC states that on Wednesday June 14, 2023, the regional examination body was informed that fireproof cabinets containing examination papers for nine subjects scheduled to be administered this week, were stolen from a school in Jamaica.
“This is of grave concern to CXC® and the matter is being investigated by the Ministry of National Security and the Jamaica Constabulary Force (JCF). CXC® is in constant contact with the Ministry of Education and Youth in Jamaica and an update was shared with the Ministries of Education from across the region at a meeting earlier today.”
The examining body said a course of action is to be determined and they will communicate with the Ministries of Education today (Thursday, June 15).
Last month, the CXC was also under pressure after it was discovered that the Mathematics Paper 2 had been leaked to several territories. It was later revealed by the CXC that the leak originated in Jamaica.
