Private candidates may now register for the Caribbean Examinations Council’s (CXC) May/June 2019 examinations.

In an effort to facilitate the registration process, candidates should bring the relevant fees; a Barbados Identification Card; driver’s licence; passport or a certified passport-size photograph as evidence of identification; and a blue or black pen.
The examination fees which are payable in cash on registration for the CXC CSEC exams are as follows: Entry fee, $36 per candidate; subject fee, $36.50; and local entrance fee, $30 per candidate. The fees for the CXC CAPE examinations are: Entry fee, $36 per candidate; subject fee, $52; and local entrance fee, $30 per candidate.
The local entrance fee covers all examinations which the candidate may be writing in May/June 2019. Additionally, all fees should be paid in cash to the Finance Section of the Ministry.
Candidates are asked to note that subject entries with a School Based Assessment component will only be accepted from ‘Resit Candidates’. Also, clashes of subject papers will not be reconciled or adjusted by the Ministry.
