BASSETERRE, St. Kitts - AN investigation was launched by the Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) into breaches of the Caribbean Secondary Examination (CSEC) Math Paper 2 which was written yesterday (May 17).
Media reports indicate that the breach might have occurred in Guyana, but no official word has come out from Georgetown in response to the allegation.
SKNVibes News has however not been able to independently confirm that report.
CXC stopped short of confirming the location where the breach occurred, but said in a media statement that it is investigating.
“The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) is aware of the concerns that the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC®) Math Paper 02 which was written today (Wednesday, 17 May 2023) was leaked. This matter is of great concern to us, we have commenced our investigations and will make a definitive statement once the investigation is completed. In the meantime, candidates can rest assured that this matter is being treated with the highest urgency,” the statement read.
This is not the first time that there have been breaches of the CXC examinations.
According to a media outlet in Guyana, Kaieteur News, “In 2005 the entire Mathematics examination was leaked with copies of the paper sold and distributed in parts of this country and online at prices ranging at the time from $20,000 to $50,000. In 2008 there was another leak in Trinidad and Tobago of English A and Mathematics Papers 2.”
