Start of 2022 CSEC Examinations Delayed

The Department of Education Services (DES) announces that the written portion of the 2022 Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Examinations will commence on May 23, 2022, three weeks after the previously scheduled start date of May 2, 2022.

The decision was revealed by the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) on Wednesday afternoon (April 27), following a special emergency meeting with regional Governments to discuss the timing of the 2022 sitting of the examination.

In addition to the delayed examination start date, CXC will share with member countries, for communication to candidates, broad topics to be assessed on Paper Two before the start of the examinations.

Other changes to the 2022 CSEC examinations include a delay in the deadline for submissions of School-Based Assessments (SBAs) to CXC by approximately two weeks.

DES Director, Mr. Mark Ray, who attended the virtual meeting, noted, “The Council has not yet provided all the specific details. However, we will notify parents, students and teachers of the outcomes once more details become available.”
