Registration for the Caribbean Examinations Council's (CXC) May to June 2013 examinations will begin on Thursday, November 1 and run until Friday, December 7, 2012.
The Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development has advised that forms are available from its Examinations Section at the Elsie Payne Complex, Constitution Road, St. Michael. These may also be filled out online at http://mes.gov.bb/. However, they should be downloaded and brought to the Section.
Persons registering should do so between 8.30 a.m. and 3.30 p.m., from Monday to Friday, and bring with them the relevant fees; their Barbados Identification Card, passport, driver's licence or some form of picture identification.
The Ministry is further reminding students that one Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate subject costs $102.50 and an additional $36.50 must be paid for any extra subject. Also, one Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Exam 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.
For further information and to view the timetable students should visit the CXC's web page, http://www.cxc.org/. There is also a link to this web page from http://mes.gov.bb/.
