CXC Delays the Start of 2021 Exams to June 28


The Caribbean Examination Council, CXC, is delaying the regional exams by two weeks.

The secondary exit exams are now set to begin on June 28.

The initial start time for the exams was June 16.

The shift in the exam date is among a number of changes that were announced a short while ago by the examination body at a press briefing.

CXC’s Registrar and CEO Wayne Wesley made the announcement.


The press briefing follows Jamaica’s Ministry of Education ramping up efforts ahead of today’s announcements to have CXC alter this year’s sitting of CSEC and CAPE in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It also follows calls by the Caribbean Union of Teachers and the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund, UNICEF, for CXC to make further adjustments to this year’s examinations.
