Electronic Testing

Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) electronic testing is coming soon! Electronic testing will allow learners to take their CXC examinations on a computer or electronic device. This exciting, new initiative is in keeping with CXC’s commitment to observe global quality standards in the delivery of examination services and deliver enhanced learner experiences through the consistent use of technology.

Electronic testing will bring regional learners up to speed with worldwide test-taking practices and provide them with the flexibility to interact with images, video, audio and other resources during their examinations. CXC’s electronic testing format will adhere to world-class security standards which will guarantee the integrity of the test taking.
