Stakeholders are reminded that results are preliminary. Candidates who may have questions about their grades, may submit requests for reviews and/or queries. The deadline for submission is Friday 7 October 2022.
Stakeholders are kindly invited to note the following guidance:
• Ungraded: A result of “Ungraded” indicates that an SBA, SBA grade, multiple-choice paper or supporting documents was not submitted on behalf of a candidate. Candidates may submit a Query to have this result investigated. Candidates are not required to pay for this service. Queries may be submitted through schools for in school candidates or through the Ministry of Education for private candidates. • Absent: Candidates who attended an examination but received a result of “Absent”, may submit a Query to have this result investigated. Candidates are not required to pay for this service. Queries may be submitted through schools for in-school candidates or through the Ministry of Education for private candidates. • Review: Candidates who may have questions about a grade and would like to have a script reviewed, may submit a request for a “Script Review”. Please note that a script review may result in an overall Grade either increasing or remaining the same. If the review results in an increase in an overall grade, the candidate will receive a refund of their review fee. Reviews may be submitted through schools for in-school candidates or through the Ministry of Education for private candidates. The cost per review is USD$30.
The CXC® team has been in contact with regional and international higher education institutions to communicate the timing of the release of results in order to minimise the possibility of students being disadvantaged during the matriculation process.
