SOME 300 students who missed the General Certifcate of Examination (GCE) because of heavy rains in late May and early June this year, will be awarded assessed grades or will be offered a free re-sit in November, the Overseas Examination Office stated yesterday.
A news release from the Overseas Examination Office said an assessed grade would be awarded especially for Ad-vanced Level subjects where sufficient evidence of the candidate's work exists.
It added that Cambridge International Examinations is processing cases of examinations missed, which the Overseas Examination Office had reported to them.
According to the news release, candidates for whom full information regarding their absence from exams was submitted, should contact their schools or the Overseas Examination Office immediately.
Beryl Urquhart, director and local registrar of the Overseas Examination Office, said Paper 2 of Human and Social Biology was the worst-affected subject because of the inclement weather.
Candidates who should have sat CXC exams will know their fate when that examination body's final awards committee meets early next month, the news release said.
