### Can i regster

I'm currently a full time student at my school however, I chose to write several science subjects such as Biology and Chemistry and Integrated Science while I'm still in form four. My teachers have recommended me and believes I will be successful and these courses.

Right now, I can only write the 3rd papers for these subjects because I haven not completed the SBA's as yet...Can I register through my school and still write the 3rd papers.

I DO NOT want to register as a PRIVATE candidate SO I need to know can I register through/ with my school and still be able to write the 3rd paper as a student of my current school.

I would appreciate a quick response and a link where CXC has this in writing. THanks in Advanced

### Re: transfer

Hi Edward, You can write your CXC CSEC exams in another school, if  the school is in a Caribbean territory where the exams are given. If this is not the case, and you are moving out of the Caribbean region, it will not be possible for you to sit these exams. Sorry.

### RE: Sitting CXC exams

could you register with the ministry of education to sit subjects without being in a school by studying on your own.

### Re: Sitting CXC exams if you are studying by yourself

Hello, yes you can sit CXC exams while studying on your own. You would sign up to sit the exams in January. The January exams are for out-of-school exam candidates.

### If I register as a private…

If I register as a private candidate through OEC and study on my own do I have the option to do the Internal Assessment (SBA) or I would have to do paper 3? If I can do the IA/ SBA who would I submit it to?

### Re: register as a private candidate

Hello,

If you register as a private candidate, you do not complete an internal assessment. Instead, you write a paper 3. There is no SBA or internal assessment offered to private candidates.

### Re: SBAs

Hello,

Private candidates, people who are out-of-school  do not do SBAs. Instead they sit a third exam paper - Paper 3.
