A written report on the appropriate form – EXA 52 Request for Compassionate Consideration – must be sent by the school or centre to the CXC Local Registrar in the Ministry of Education by the specified deadline for transmission to the Council. Consideration may be given to the award of an Assessed Grade depending on the circumstances of the case. If the candidate was absent for a major paper, for example the Paper 2, it is unlikely that he/she would be eligible for the award of an Assessed Grade.
