The Education Ministry on Wednesday said Caribbean Secondary Education (CSEC) results would not be delivered to students unless they return textbooks that had been loaned to them.

“Students who fail to return the textbooks, which were loaned to them by their school, will not be able to access their CXC results,” the ministry said in a brief statement.

The Education Ministry said it was merely enforcing it Textbook Policy which states that “Learners must return books before Progress Reports, Examination Results, Recommendations, or References are uplifted.”

The Ministry said it was forced to adopt “this unfortunate position” in an effort to provide adequate text books and similar opportunities to the next batch of students.
