Examples of Responses to Questions in the Examinations
In keeping with our drive here at CXC to enhance the support provided to candidates who are preparing to write our examinations, we are displaying on our website exemplars of candidates’ responses to examination questions. These are authentic, unedited responses. They are presented in the candidates’ own handwriting, accompanied by comments from the Examination Committee that indicate the Committee’s judgement of the quality of the responses and the justification for arriving at that judgement.
This is a pilot effort, covering only selected subjects. We at CXC welcome your feedback on how useful you find this information to be and, in particular, how we can improve on the provision of such information. Your comments will contribute to the future expansion and refinement of this material.
The Council, in offering the syllabus, is providing opportunities for the attainment of a working knowledge of Physical Education and Sport and its component parts. Such knowledge can form the basis for further studies in Physical Education and related fields in health and sport. The Physical Education and Sport Syllabus takes into consideration the multicultural nature of the Caribbean people and consequently, endeavours to respond to a wide range of Physical Education and Sport experiences. The syllabus comprises a Compulsory Core and three Options that are to be completed during the two-year course of study. Each candidate must complete the Compulsory Core, ONE sport from each of the three sports from at least two different options.
