LAWYERS for a group of disgruntled students and teachers who submitted a pre-action protocol letter threatening legal action against the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) registrar over grades given in this year’s CXC exams, are yet to decide on a way forward.

Attorney Darrell Allahar said he and his partner Keith Scotland have not decided on how they will proceed.

The legal team represents Holy Ghost Fathers and Dominican Sisters school boards, which manage several schools including Fatima College, St Mary’s College and Holy Name Convent.

On October 22, an independent review team convened by CXC to review the moderation process used by the council, made public its report on the matter.

Students, parents, and teachers have all expressed their dissatisfaction with the report and the Ministry of Education’s response to the council on the matter.

This year’s grades resulted in many students protesting in outrage over what they deem to be an unfair assessment of their exams.

On Monday Allahar said the team was still going through the 46-page document with their clients. “We are still considering the report,” he said. “Nothing (has been) decided as yet.”
