CXC understands that core to its role as the regional examination body is the need to showcase and reward excellent performance in its examinations.
Within this regard, CXC introduced Regional Awards for outstanding performances at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) level in 1988.
In 2001, CXC and The University of the West Indies partnered to offer scholarships to the Regional Top Awardees at CSEC.
In 2006, CXC introduced Regional Awards for outstanding performances at the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE) level.
Currently, the awardees receive a monetary prize, a plaque, books and a trip to the country in which the presentation ceremony is being hosted.
CXC is seeking funding to expand the Annual Regional Top CSEC® and CAPE® Awards Scholarships to encourage excellence in the candidates who pursue our examinations.
