The Caribbean Examinations Council, CXC, has released the CSEC results for more than 100 Penwood High students who didn’t receive grades this year.
This, because of the late submission of School-Based Assessments, SBAs.
Minister of Education Minister, Ruel Reid, made the announcement yesterday. He says students at other schools affected by the non-submission of SBAs have also received their results.
He says 131 students from Penwood High had not received grades for Principles of Business, Office Administration, Economics, Theatre Arts, and Social Studies.
Twenty-seven students from the Portmore Community College and 26 from Haile Sellasie High School were also impacted.
Manning’s Evening School also had 118 students who’d been affected.
Mr. Reid says the Ministry has established a monitoring mechanism, or a dashboard, which will track student registration for overseas examinations.
He says this will help identify any discrepancies between registration information locally and CXC results.
