Minister of Education, Youth and Information Ruel Reid announced on Tuesday (March 23) that students sitting Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) external exams will be provided with extra answer sheets, if they need them.

Speaking at the Jamaica House post-Cabinet press briefing on Tuesday, Minister Reid disclosed that the Education Ministry had “been in touch” with CXC to allay concerns that it would cease to give extra answer sheets to students sitting  the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate examination and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination.

"We want to assure the public that CXC will be working to ensure that extra paper will be provided, just in case students require the extra paper," Reid stated.
