CANDIDATES WHO wrote the Caribbean Examinations Council's (CXC) papers this year will be able to access their results online.
This is the first time this facility is being made available to candidates. However, CXC has been issuing the results to participating territories via its Online Registration System for the past three years.
"This functionality has taken full account of the issues raised by principals about the need to ensure that students are in full compliance with school regulations and have fulfilled their obligations prior to receipt of results," explained Susan Giles, senior assistant registrar for examinations administration and security at CXC.
The examination body points out that local registrars and principals of schools have the capacity to restrict access to the results from some schools and candidates if they deem it necessary for compliance reasons.
Candidates wishing to view their results online must use the link http://ors.cxc.org/studentportal. They will enter their 10-digit registration number, last name and date of birth to access their results.
