CXC working to ensure CAPE, CSEC results delivered

Students feverishly attempting to access their 2017 May/June Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) results via the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) website should expect a resolution to the issue soon.

The Education Ministry said it is aware of issues accessing the results on the site and is working with CXC to resolve the problem.

Education Minister Anthony Garcia, with support from Chief Education Officer Harrilal Seecharan and the Examinations Division have been collectively working through the weekend to ensure access.

Garcia acknowledged an understanding of the importance of these results for students to continue on in their academic journey, be it to Sixth Form or tertiary education.

Candidates who wrote May/June 2017 CAPE examinations were able to access their results on Friday  while most CSEC candidates were able to access their results on Saturday.

Principals now also have access to the results online.

Stakeholders are advised that the Ministry does not manage the websites for release of CXC results.

These portals are managed by the Caribbean Examinations Council and any challenges faced by T&T nationals in accessing their results are communicated to the Council by the Ministry. 

The Minister restated his commitment to the delivery of these results in the fastest possible time to meet with the deadlines that principals and candidates may be facing.
