Minister Manickchand said that she is pleased with the partnership shared between the Ministry and CXC® particularly in the area of administering and managing our major examinations, CSEC® and CAPE.  

Though the NGSA is a local examination, the Ministry of Education has contracted CXC® to manage the setting of the examination, marking, grading, verification and review processes.

Minister Manickchand said that Guyana is in the process of reviewing its curriculum and will require the assistance of the examination body to help children benefit from more practical learning especially at the primary level.

Dr. Wesley said that the Council will be ready to offer the required assistance and said that assessments can be designed to provide increased focus on the assessment of the competencies the skillset children are expected to demonstrate.
