JTA, Jamaican MOE and Overseas Examination Commission want extension of CXC registration deadline for May/June 2010 exams

The Jamaica Teachers Association, Jamaican Ministry of Education and the Overseas Examination Commission want an extension of the CXC registration deadline for May/June 2010 exams


The major Education authorities in Jamaica are urging the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) to extend the deadline for registration for next year’s regional exams, in light of difficulties being experienced by many schools.

The current registration deadline for students to sit the external examinations is Tuesday, November 24, 2009.

However, several high school administrators have expressed concern that their students may not meet the deadline because of delays associated with the use of a new online registration system.

The JTA's President, Michael Stewart is seeking a two week extension of the registration deadline.

The Education Ministry and the Overseas Examination Commission have already written to the CXC head office in Barbados urging a speedy resolution of the problem.

The Commission has cited inordinately long processing times, frequent malfunction of the CXC website and the inability of users to log on to site.

The Commission also highlighted the problems of the duplication of candidates and the inaccuracy of reports generated by the system.

So it seems that there may still be time for people who want to register for the CXC exams in May/June 2010. If you still want to register for these exams I suggest you contact the Ministry of Education in your territory and ask them to talk to CXC as well.
