Foundation students unable to access CXC results

Frustrations are currently growing at the Christ Church Foundation School where students remain in the dark on their Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) results.

Reports reaching NATIONNEWS are that many students across the island were able to access their CSEC results on the CXC website as early as yesterday.

However, several parents and students at Foundation this morning explained they have been locked out from accessing their results online.

As the NATION understands it, students are sometimes barred from accessing results based on the non-payment of fees or outstanding items such as books.

But many parents explained this was not the case with them as their children were in good standing, but still locked out.

And with the deadline for sixth form applications coming next week Monday, several of those parents explained they came to the school this morning to collect their results slips.

Yet further frustration ensued as the waiting groups said they were told by the school that the slips were not ready and the principal Robert Cumberbatch had gone to collect them from the Ministry of Education.

However, when Cumberbatch returned to the school the students were informed the physical slips were still not ready as there had been an issue with printing.

Meanwhile, some of them were finally able to access their online results, however others said they were told to keep trying the website as the school tried to rectify the online issue.

Efforts to reach officials from the Ministry of Education for comment have been unsuccessful so far as we were told they had been in meetings all morning. (AD)
