CXC announces staggered regional release of CAPE, CSEC results
The Ministry of Education is reporting that the Caribbean Examinations Council has announced a new system for the upcoming release of May/June 2019 CAPE and CSEC examination results.
The Ministry says Jamaican students will be able to access their CAPE results between 2:30 p.m. and 5: 30 p.m. today, August 13, 2019 and the CSEC results will be released during the same time period on Thursday, August 15.
It says CXC notes that in the past, students may have experienced access issues due to the high volume of traffic received on the CXC website, where the results were scheduled to be released at 10:00 p.m. EST, on release dates.
This year, in order to ensure that students have easy access to the results portal, CXC will release results at varying times throughout the day.
Territories in the Eastern Caribbean will receive their results at earlier times than Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago at a later time on the same dates.
The Ministry says the new approach will mean decreased numbers of students visiting the website at one specific time.
Results will be released to specific countries for a window of time between two to three hours on release dates.
Subsequently, results will be available freely until the portal is closed.
