CXC warns employees of criminal action
The Registrar at the Barbados-based Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) Dr. Didacus Jules is warning of criminal action against any employee who may have leaked Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE) test papers to students in Trinidad and Tobago.
Jules said that if it is found that the leak was within CXC, there would be consequences for whoever was involved in that process.
Nearly 4,000 students were affected by the council’s decision to cancel all CAPE exams in Trinidad.
The move was agreed at an emergency meeting in Barbados on Sunday, after media reports said that Communication Studies exam papers were being offered to students in Trinidad and Tobago for as much as TT$5,000.
CXC announced that all the existing papers were withdrawn and said new papers would be issued in order to maintain the integrity of the examination.
