Late Release of 2021 Results - Students preparing to sit CSEC and CAPE exams can expect their results to be released in Late September or Early October.

In a statement published on May 27th, the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) announced that exams will now be held from June 28th until July 30th. CXC indicated that the two-week delay would provide candidates with extra time to prepare for exams. As a result, results are expected to be released between the last week of September to the first week of October. For more information - https://www.cxc.org/2021-exams-strategy-statement/
