KINGSTON, Jamaica — Education Minister, Senator Ruel Reid, will today address the performance of Jamaican students in the recently released results of the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE).

The briefing is scheduled for 1:00 pm at the minister's Heroes Circle office in Kingston.

Despite the Barbados-based Caribbean Examination Council (CXC) on Monday reporting a decline in the number of candidates who registered for major exams in the 2016-2017 academic year, Trinidad has seen improvements in student's performance.

Yesterday, Education Minister for Trinidad, Anthony Garcia, said after a detailed analysis on the performance of students, improvement in their performance was seen.
He added that results will be available to students today.

CSEC is offered in January for re-sit and private candidates and in May/June for in-school candidates and private candidates while CAPE is designed to provide certification of the academic, vocational and technical achievement of student.
