No tampering with exams results, says CXC

In light of media reports in the region regarding the tampering with its results online, the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) assures the public of the security and integrity of its examinations results.{{more}}

While there have been reports in the media of candidates attempting to change their results, candidates do not have access to the CXC database and therefore cannot change or tamper with the information residing on the CXC database.

Candidates have been reminded that there are penalties for tampering with information contained in the preliminary result slip.

Employers and educational institutions are reminded that they should ask applicants to present either the official CXC certificate as supporting documentation or instruct the applicant to apply to CXC for an official transcript, which will be sent directly from CXC to the institution.

This year, for the first time, CXC has made the results available online to schools and candidates. The candidates see only their personal preliminary results.

CXC will issue official examination certificates in November, as usual.
