Alumni want speedy solution
The Queen’s College Alumni Association is calling for a swift resolution to the controversy over Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) exam results.
Students in Barbados and across the region have been protesting their results in the 2020 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) examinations after preliminary results were released on September 22.
They expressed dissatisfaction with their grades, launched petitions and staged protests at CXC headquarters.
Yesterday, following a church service at Western Light Church of the Nazarene in Oxnards, St James, to kick off Queen’s College Founder’s Week, president of the association, Michelle Daniel, said the situation not only affected the students’ academic pursuits but also their psychological well-being.
She appealed for a speedy resolution. (SB)
