The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) has reported a significant rise in student performance for the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exams.

Across various subjects, there was an uptick in acceptable grades (Grade One, Two, or Three) compared to the previous year.

Dr. Nicole Manning, CXC’s Director of Operations and Examinations, highlighted an increase in candidate and subject entries for both exams, indicating progress beyond pandemic challenges.

Notable performance was noted in core subjects like Communication Studies and Caribbean Studies.

However, concerns were raised about absenteeism and incomplete School-Based Assessments, prompting collaboration among stakeholders.(Observer)

  1. Listing to the director of Education last evening on the news. I heard that Antigua improve in English Language and move to the early 80’s. However dropped significantly in this the sciences and dropped below 50% in geography. The improvement in math was marginal especially that it is in the early 30’s in percentage point. So as far as I see in we did not improve at all. Kudos to Mrs. Collins and the English teachers for the work you are doing in England- Keep up the good work.

    Schools will reopen soon. Can we do this?
    All Maths teachers in EVERY PUBLIC SCHOOL with their students PLEDGE that they are all capable MATHS LEARNERS with endless potential and can achieve grade-level success in each semester.
    Get rid of the myth that you are not a ‘maths person’ and cannot learn maths!

    Let us interact with humility, grace, good intentions! Be nice to each other!

    Save our Humanity, Save our Youths, Save our Environment, Save our Soil!!!
