So were the CAPE exams in Trinidad were POSTPONED or CANCELLED?

From what little I could remember from school, I think the correct word to use in this instance is postponed.

What do you think?

The examinations are postponed as students would still have to do the exams after June 13th, 2008.

I am a CAPE student myself...and I must say it is very stressful on us, as we are lost, and confused, it feels as though we are puppets. Now the principals are angry and want to lobby for a closer date,more like Jube1st because apparently there were more options than the 2 disclosed by Esther Le Gendre (if thats how her name is spelt), and now they want exams to begin June1 instead of July 1. however, many people don't know how de-motivating and distracting this whole thing is.
