Can you use calculators in the math multiple choice paper?

In reply to by guest (not verified)

No you are not allowed to use calculators in the CXC CSEC math paper 1.
The notes to the CXC CSEC exams states,

"Attention is drawn to the rule that silent non-programmable scientific calculators may be used in the following examinations:
(ii) Mathematics - Paper 2 only

So you can only use calculators for paper 2 of the CXC CSEC math exam.

Learn to write and spell.

I finished school two years ago and I received a grade four in Math and English. I want to re-sit the subjects but do not know how to return to school. I need help please.

Why did you waste the five years when the government sent you to school for free? Now you will have to pay someone to teach you what you should have learnt.

Contact your old school, ask the principal if you can come and talk to the pupils to explain why they should be studying now while it is free.
