CSEC Exams Underway

The annual Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate was pushed back as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students across the region have been out of the classrooms and schools had to resort to online learning to prepare fourth form students for the regional exams. The Caribbean Examination Council, after consultations, decided on mid-July for the exams to commence and so on Monday, July thirteenth through to August fourth, CSEC exams are being held across the region, Belize included. In respect of the CAPE exams, those conclude on the thirty-first of July.  All the exams are paper-based, except for two, which are done online: information technology and the electronic document preparation and management, which is an alternate paper that is done by private candidates and adult continuing education. News Five has confirmed that sixty students will be sitting the CAPE; that is down by thirteen when compared to 2019. For CSEC, three thousand six hundred and forty-six fourth form students are sitting the exams. That’s down by forty-nine when compared to 2019.
