CXC says 80% of the requests for remarks have been completed and the final results were shared with local registrars across the region.

“We have released 80% of the final results and are working assiduously to complete the remainder,” the regional exam body told The Gleaner in an email response this afternoon.

Today’s announcement comes months after a wave of complaints by parents and students across Jamaica and elsewhere in the Caribbean about discrepancies in the grades provided by CXC in September.

It was argued that the worst-than-expected scores did not match the profiles on the preliminary results sheet.

“CXC values and appreciates all our stakeholders’ feedback and in 2021 we are committed to listening to and engaging with each stakeholder group as we work together for the mutual benefit of all stakeholders,” said CXC.
