Deputy Director in charge of Examinations, Sharon Burnett, has indicated ‘that only written exams were rescheduled and that all other exams, oral and practical, will continue on the dates previously stated.

Burnett noted that oral and practical exams started on Tuesday, April 12.

Candidates are being advised that the Art Production examinations will be conducted on their previously scheduled date. CSEC Visual Arts will begin on Monday, May 02, and CAPE Art & Design productions will begin on Monday, May 09.

Burnett explained that exam papers were already distributed to candidates before the announcement made by CXC.

The revised timetables will be uploaded to the CXC website, ORS & the student portal for the rescheduled written examinations.
