BRIDGETOWN, Barbados – The Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC®) is currently monitoring Tropical Storm Bret as it approaches the region. During and after the passage of this weather system, the safety and well-being of all our stakeholders is paramount.

We urge all stakeholders to follow the safety directives provided by each government. CXC® is in dialogue with ministries of education across the region as it relates to the examinations which may be affected in their country.
