CXC exams to go ahead

After consultations with Ministries of Education from across the region on Thursday morning, regional examinations will be administered as scheduled, says the Caribbean Examinations Council.

“To date, there has been no confirmation that the secured fire-proof cabinet containing examination papers, which was stolen from a school in Jamaica has been compromised.

“CXC reassures candidates that their best interests continue to be at the centre of the organisation’s decisions and processes and wishes all candidates well in their examinations. As the police continue their investigations in Jamaica, CXC and Ministry officials from across the region will continue to monitor the security of the regional examinations,” a release said.

On Wednesday, CXC said fireproof cabinets containing examination papers for nine subjects scheduled to be administered this week, were stolen from a school in Jamaica. (PR/SAT)
