what do you mean you have 43 short stories to do? do you write out your short stories before the exams? How do you do that?

I really like your site it helps to motivate Caribbean student to never give up and with the help of information and share networking it works for all students alike so no one like left out.
So just reading your guides it inspire me to know more and wanting to know more about the Caribbean Examination Council, to get a inside view of what to expect.

For the longest while I have been trying to access the model essays, much to no success. I think these essays are very helpful and I would love to peruse them .

Please tell me what I need to do in order to access these essays. The system does not even recognize my email or password any more.

In order to not exceed the word limit, one must wright only 4-5 sentences per paragraph.

you count and add the amount of words in the firts line of the sentence ,then count the amount of line going down.then you multipy the amount of words that is in the sentence by the amount of lines ,
eg:i love u
-----------. thes would be calculated by saying 3multipy by3 lines of sentence.
