Thank you for all this help its a blessing.
our CXC English exam guide is a pretty thorough breakdown of what is actually in the CXC English A syllabus.
In fact, it is much more, because in addition to the info from the CXC English A syllabus, we provide an amazing amount of resources to help your prepare for and pass the CXC English A exam.
Take a look at it and let us know if you think something that should be there, isn't there. You could help us to improve the guide.
Thanks, just wanted some extra help but I went through the site and found some great tips, like the section where you had answer a summary question and gave us tips on how to, cause that seems to be my weak point, and I need to pass that English so I can continue my studies.
You guys are doing a great job in helping the Caribbean students and I am going to recommend this site to those who have problem English and math where I work.
thanks again, blessings
