THE Ministry of Education is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will soon advise the public on new dates for all 2020 national examinations.
In a statement released yesterday, the ministry noted that due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, Cambridge officials have decided to cancel the May/June 2020
sitting of the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
examinations in countries around the world.
The ministry said this does not affect the sitting of the 2020 Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC) and Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE) examinations.
“It is not our intention to disadvantage any student,” the ministry said. “The safety of our population and the educational opportunities for all students are of paramount importance to the Ministry of Education.”
