Hi...please don't give up on trying. If you practice hard enough, have faith in God and claim in your mind that you will and must achieve a mark higher than a 5 then it will work out. But please, don't ever give up and keep on trying till you reach your goal.

it's scary how the percent go up and drop all the down below 50 then rise again,

that the CXC math paper 2 is 'that bad'. What I would say is that you cannot guess your way through it. Very importantly, you have to show your 'working' (problem-solving steps) clearly. It is not enough just to write down the correct answer. You have to show how you got your answer.

What some people don't realise is that it is possible to get a math answer wrong and still get marks for the question. This can happen if you show that your 'working'(problem-solving process) is correct and you know what you are doing. If you do that, you can make the wrong calculations, give the wrong answer and still get marks. Why? Because you have shown that you know what process to follow to solve the problem and you get marks for that.

So getting the 'right answer' isn't the whole story.

i wanna ask a math question kathy there was a question on paper 2 secton 1 and there was like a table it was going down in sequences like 1 2 4 6 so i thought it was even numbers and continued to 14 and found the probability and stuff after i realised the correct numbers to be use were at the top of the page can i still get marks for understand the concept?

I don't think you should try and study the day before, you need to work hard to be successful.

Donnicka James (not verified) 4 February 2010 - 9:23pm

Hey all,

I want know if the time-table for CXC 2010 is really what i am going to get later down at my school.
our school wait too long to give us our time-tables that why we are so behind. please respond to this anyone.

Hi Donnicka,

Yes, this is the CXC timetable for the May/June 2010 CSEC exams at present; it is a draft timetable though. This means that CXC may make changes to the timetable if it discovers conflicts in the timetabling of the subjects.

I will say though, that there are usually very few changes between the draft timetable and the final one. So, you can use this timetable as your guide for exams in May/June 2010.
