CXC employs a consultative process for syllabus development. Under the guidance of syllabus officers, subject panels prepare syllabuses for all subjects examined by CXC. The staff members responsible for these activities have graduate qualifications and several years of experience in curriculum development and related activities.
The CXC syllabuses are used as the main source for curricula at the upper secondary and post-CSEC levels. With the expertise at its disposal, CXC is well placed to work with Ministries of Education to develop programmes that will enable a smooth transition from one level to another within the education system.
