Candidates who wrote the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) exams in May/June can now access their results online.
According to a press release this is the first time that this facility is being made available to candidates; though CXC has been issuing the results to Participating Territories via its Online Registration System (ORS) for the past three years.
“This functionality has taken full account of the issues raised by Principals about the need to ensure that students are in full compliance with school regulations and have fulfilled their obligations prior to receipt of results,” explained Susan Giles, Senior Assistant Registrar for Examinations Administration and Security at CXC. She also noted that, “at the same time it meets the Council’s objective of delivering results by the most reliable and expeditious method and in the shortest possible time.”
Candidates who wish to view their results online can access them through the link http://ors.cxc.org/studentportal.They must then enter their 10-digit registration number, last name and date of birth to access their results. However, the release also noted that CXC local registrars and principals of schools have the capacity to restrict access to the results from some schools and candidates if they deem it necessary for compliance reasons.
In addition, to candidates’ results, CXC has also made the broadsheets, centre statistics and Merit Lists for schools available to principals via the ORS. Candidates are advised to check the calendar on the CXC website www.cxc.org for the release dates for CAPE, CSEC and CCSLC results.
CXC Registrar Dr Didacus Jules lauded this development and said it is in keeping with the strategic vision of making CXC an IT-Intelligent Organisation which leverages ICT for the benefits of its stakeholders.
