The Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) has granted an extension to British Virgin Islands students for submission of their School Based Assessments (SBAs).
SBAs are school projects that are part of CXC’s examination requirements; and they contribute to students’ final CXC test scores.
CXC extended the SBA deadline for hurricane-affected students after the Ministry of Education lobbied for more time.
“We have relayed our concerns to the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) regarding projects and examinations for our students and as such, they have provided some adjustments to their time frame to ensure that our students have the best opportunity to do well on their exams,” said Minister of Education, Myron Walwyn.
“An extension for School Based Assessments has been given up to July 31 and students who have moved to other countries are being asked to register using their BVI number so that the results can be sent back to the BVI when results are released.”
Walwyn added: “We thank the CXC for working along with us to ensure that our students are not disadvantaged in any way.”
