CXC® has once again put concessions in place to support students in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

These include:

• School Based Assessments (SBAs) – The reductions to SBA Requirements made in 2021, asmuch as 50 per cent in some subjects, were maintained.

• Option to Defer – The deferral strategy has been extended for use any time prior to the
administration of a subject. Candidates will be able to defer to January or June 2023,
whenever the subject is administered.

As we look ahead to 2023, CXC® continues to work with regional Ministries of Education on its digital transformation strategy.

Plans are currently underway to begin administering all Paper 01 examinations electronically in 2023.
