The Caribbean Community’s (CARICOM) Council of Human and Social Development (COHSOD) met in Special session on Tuesday 12 May to examine concerns related to the administration of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) Exams for 2021. The concerns arose out of recommendations made to CXC at a meeting of the COHSOD in March 2021.
COHSOD, in noting that the authority to determine changes to the administration of the examinations rests with the CXC, proposed that the CXC should undertake a review of the recommendations made by COHSOD, and stakeholders, at its twenty-eighth Special Meeting.
The COHSOD emphasised that this proposal was with a view towards efficiency, equity and fairness in the administration of the examinations, while maintaining the integrity of the process.
CXC’s response will be sent to participating Governments in the next week before being taken to its governing Council for approval.
