TAMCC CAPE Examination Results

PR – The T. A. Marryshow Community College is making another appeal to both students and lecturers to  bring all queries and concerns to the Office of the Registrar, Examinations Department by Monday,  October 12, 2020. 

The College would like to inform that the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) released the 2020  results of the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE), to students on September 22,  2020. Subsequent to this release, the College received the preliminary master sheet with such grades  from the Ministry of Education on Saturday September 26, 2020. 

Having reviewed the results, the College realized that a significant number of students received  ungraded in the following subject areas: Pure Mathematics (Unit 1 and 2); Entrepreneurship (Unit 1 and  2); Environmental Science (Unit 1); Management of Business (Unit 1); Sociology (Unit 2);  Communication Studies; Caribbean Studies and Law (Unit 1).  

Subsequent to initiating the process to resolving the issue of ungraded, a few students then informally  expressed their dissatisfaction with their individual results in the CAPE Examination. A further analysis  suggested that there appears to be some anomalies, and we recognized that this may have resulted in  some undue stress and dismay to both students and parents. Since the Examinations Council has a  detailed procedure to address the review of grades, students were advised to submit their review request  to the Caribbean Examinations Office at the College via email or in-person by October 6, 2020. In  addition, lecturers were also advised to report any suspected anomalies to the Dean of the School for  further verification as required. 

We have been informed that CXC will be releasing results for the units mentioned above soon, as  students’ SBA scores have been uploaded on the CXC portal.

In this regard, the College thanks all stakeholders for their understanding and patience pending the  resolution of the relevant issues surrounding the CAPE 2020 results. It is because of this dilemma; we  are unable to provide a complete analysis of the results as is customarily expected. However, once these  issues have been resolved, we will undertake the usual comprehensive analysis of the CAPE Results and  inform the relevant stakeholders. 

Thank you.
