The Council for Human and Social Development (COHSOD)- Education should present the new recommendations that the Caribbean Examinations Council needs to address before exams begin in June.

COHSOD had previously agreed with CXC for the examinations to be conducted in it’s normal state. This agreement came during the twenty-sixth special meeting of the council on February 26th and March 1st this year. Now, the Council is calling for CXC to review some concerns which the regional body had not executed from the earlier recommendations. COHSOD met last week Tuesday to urge CXC to address it’s concerns with the exams but advised that the decision to implement changes rests on CXC.

What are the concerns that the council had proposed for CXC to consider? So far, CXC has extended the deferral deadline, and has also shared broad topics though not five weeks prior as previously recommended by COHSOD.

The official start of the examinations is June 1 and this is 7 business days away from today. COHSOD says CXC’s response to its concerns will be sent to participating governments by next week.

The Hope Vision will continue to track the updates.
