The Caribbean Examinations Council has released the overall results for the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) and the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC), commonly known as the CXC.

The good news is the CSEC examination results improved compared to last year. Sixty-five per cent of subject entries achieved acceptable grades – Grades I – III, compared with 62 per cent in 2012.

Overall performance improved on 21 of the 35 subjects offered, including English and Math. But we should note that in math performance remained below average with 35 per cent of entries achieving acceptable grades, compared with 33 per cent last year. The Committee noted that more than 13, 000 candidates were unable to measure and state the length of a given line and determine the measure of an angle on one question.

And in the CAPE, for the first time in six years, overall performance has reached the 90 per cent mark – meaning 90.15 per cent of the Unit entries achieved Grades I – V.

Performance improved on 19 subjects, remained steady on 10 and declined on 17.
