This course is built on the 3rd Form Foundation and requires students to have mastered the basics. The bulk of the CSEC syllabus must be covered in 4th Form when there are three teaching terms available as opposed to only two 5th Form.
SBA’s are done as a normal part of the course and should not be thought of as a burden to the student. Failure to submit these at the correct time will disadvantage students since this component is worth 20% of the exam mark.
The Outline follows CXC Syllabus which may be purchased for full details.
Students may also benefit from the Comments posted in the Examination Reports on the cxc website.
