CSEC, CAPE and PEP examinations likely to be pushed back

by March 25th, 2020

In light of COVID-19, there is a possibility that the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations will be rescheduled.

 

That’s according to State Minister for Education, Alando Terrelonge.

 

Mr. Terrelonge, who was speaking at an online town hall meeting for youth and children yesterday, explained that any decision made, will be determined by the progress of COVID-19 across the region.

 

He noted that in both scenarios, delaying the examinations will lead to a late start of the next school year.

 

 

Mr. Terrelonge added that discussions will be conducted with various universities.

 

 

Meantime, the State Minister said the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) exams will possibly be rescheduled to sometime in June.

 

Mr. Terrelonge noted that the rescheduling of the exam dates will be determined by the impact of COVID-19 on the country.

 

 

He is encouraging children and parents to use the available resources, to facilitate continued learning.
