THE Ministry of Education said the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) intends to investigate reports that students’ preliminary grades, issued in the 2020 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), were changed without notice.
The ministry said the Online Registration System will be updated to reflect the original grades issued to students and also include the preliminary result slips.
The ministry in a release on Saturday said it had received reports from students in several schools who noticed the changes to their preliminary grades without any notification on Friday.
A release said the ministry contacted CXC through the local registrar on Saturday and found out "no such notification" had been made in keeping with the standard practice.
The release also said the ministry raised the issue as an "urgent concern" in a meeting on Saturday with the Independent Review Team and CXC intends to investigate the matter thoroughly.
The ministry said a regional ministers’ of education meeting is scheduled for Monday to discuss the report of the Independent Review Team. It said an update on that report, and TT’s position will be later communicated.
