CXC to establish committee to rule on Jamaica College CAPE issue
2013-09-25 21:17:33 | (0 Comments)
The Barbados-based Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) is to establish a committee to make a final determination about whether to award grades to 70 Jamaica College, JC, physics students.
The students sat physics in the 2013 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE).
Yesterday, the Overseas Examinations Commission said it had completed and submitted a report into an investigation that stemmed from complaints by a former JC physics teacher that the school had fabricated the internal assessment grades for its CAPE physics students.
Head of the local entity, Hector Stephenson had reported earlier this month that three laboratory books that should have been submitted to the CXC were at the school.
CXC assistant registrar for public information and customer service, Cleveland Sam says the regional body has received all outstanding reports and will be establishing a committee to rule whether grades should be awarded to the students.
"The committee, through CXC would report the results of the findings to the Overseas Exams Commission, who would then distribute the results to the school," said Sam. "That's the normal procedure at CXC, the results go to the local registrar and in Jamaica the Overseas Exams Commission is the local registrar."
Principal of Jamaica College Ruel Reid has said the matter is an internal one and is being addressed.
