In making the announcement, the Education Ministry explained that the decision was arrived at during an emergency meeting of the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) on Wednesday, April 27, 2022, which took into account several matters related to the Regional Examinations.
“Coming out of the meeting a decision was made to delay the start of the written and practical components of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Examination and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE),” the Education Ministry said.
The examinations will now start on May 23, 2022, and end on July 1, 2022.
Results are expected to be released in late August 2022 or early September 2022.
