Registration starts next month for 2018 CXC exams
Registration for the Caribbean Examinations Council’s (CXC) May to June 2018 examinations will begin on Wednesday, November 1, and run until Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
The Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Innovation has advised that forms are available from its Examinations Section at the Elsie Payne Complex, Constitution Road, St Michael.
Persons registering should do so Mondays to Fridays between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., and bring with them the relevant fees; their Barbados Identification Card, passport, driver’s licence or some form of picture identification, along with a blue/black ink pen.
The Ministry is further reminding students that one CSEC subject costs $102.50 and an additional $36.50 must be paid for any extra subject. Also, one CAPE subject is $118 and an additional unit will be $52.
All fees should be paid in cash to the Finance Section of the Ministry of Education.
Subject entries with a School Based Assessment (SBA) component will only be accepted from “Re-sit Candidates”.
According to the Ministry, candidates should choose their subjects carefully to avoid having to write two or more papers concurrently. If this happens, no alternate arrangements will be made.
Individuals are also advised that clashes of subject papers with those of other examining bodies cannot be reconciled or adjusted by the Ministry. Candidates writing examinations with more than one examination body have therefore been advised to consult the timetables for the respective examinations before registering.
