Registration for the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) January 2016 examinations will begin on Tuesday, September 1, and run until Friday, October 2.
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.
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; along with a blue/black ink pen.
The Ministry is also reminding students that one CSEC subject costs $102.50 and an additional $36.50 must be paid for any extra subject. The Local Entrance Fee of $30 covers all examinations which the candidate may be writing during the period January 2016.
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.
