CHESTER SAMBRANO

Member of Parliament for Tabaquite, Anita Haynes, is demanding that the Government insists on an emergency meeting of the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC), and orders an independent audit of the body’s operations.

The call comes days after many students around the Caribbean complained about the grades they received.

Speaking at a UNC virtual meeting last night, MP Haynes said the response from the Minister of Education has been weak and timid.

“I call upon the Government to insist on an emergency meeting of the Council and to order an independent audit into the processes and procedures of the CXC Board,” the MP stated.

She added: “To the young adults who have been affected by this débàcle, stay strong. You are facing quite a challenge now, but you have people behind you.”

The Ministry of Education has said it is compiling a list of queries to send to CXC.
