At the end of the Third Form Year, students and parents make choices about the subjects they will study at CXC.  Most students will sit eight (8) subjects – a few, nine (9) – at this level.

 

The Fourth and Fifth Year are geared towards the public examinations and the syllabi and teaching reflect this.  Students can select their subjects from about twenty-one (21) options offered at this level. All students have a core curriculum Science subjects, foreign languages, technical, vocational and commercial programmes round out the choices available.
