I dont know why this occurrs, If I comment out all the Education \cventry fields, then it compiles properly. But I cant leave the education field blank in my CV, so Please help.

• Hi! I don't think it's possible to help you without a minimal working example (MWE). – yo' May 3 '14 at 10:46
• This warning is caused by one of the following duplicate newlines, too few curly braced arguments or block comments to the right of to \cventry. The warning is presented on the first instance of \cventry even if the offending cventry is lower down in the document. bazinga. – Eric Leschinski Nov 3 '18 at 1:03

Your cventry has only 5 arguments. It needs to have 6:

\cventry{2004}{Secondary School}{ABC School}{Cityname}{\textit{94.4/100}}{}

• Missing the extra argument is the key. Thanks! – Diaa Dec 23 '20 at 13:05
