“The Primary School Education examinations scheduled for March thirtieth and April thirtieth are now suspended and at a later date provide new information on these portions of the primary school exam. For our high schoolers who are concerned about CSEC examinations and our tertiary level students who are concerned about the CAPE exams remember that these exams are regional exams and the regional body responsible for CSEC and CAPE, CXC Caribbean Examination Council is at this time considering adjustment to the exam administration period. Our personnel here in Belize in the Ministry of Education are part of those discussions and once those decisions are finalized we will make every attempt to have Belizeans students and their parents what is expected of them as it relates to these exams. I can tell you now from Belize’s point of view there are several areas that we are now well behind in and because of the closure of school we have indicated that there is no way possible for us to be up to the mark for the timeline required for the current track that these exams will be on and so quite likely this is the position we won’t continue with this timeline.”
