CXC qualifications now recognised in India

The Association of Indian Universities (AIU), the clearing house for international qualifications in India has granted equivalence to the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) and the Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examination (CAPE), the two leading qualifications offered by CXC.

In a letter to CXC, the Indian High Commissioner in Trinidad and Tobago conveyed the news to Dr Didacus Jules, CXC Registrar.

The AIU has granted equivalence to Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) with a minimum of five subjects at Grades I and II with Grade 10 examination of an Indian [examinations] board.

With respect to CAPE, the AIU has accorded equivalence to CAPE with a minimum of five subjects with a plus-two stage qualification of an Indian [examinations]board. This the AIU states is also the minimum eligibility requirement for admission to a bachelor degree programme at an Indian university.

The statement points out that candidates who are successful at CAPE are eligible to join conventional degree programmes at Indian universities; however, candidates who wish to pursue a professional degree programme are required to have studied Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Physics at the advance proficiency level.

“This is good news for CXC and the Caribbean,” stated Dr. Didacus Jules, Registrar of CXC. “It is another statement that assures us in the region that the qualifications offered by CXC are of a very high standard and stand up to international scrutiny.”

Jules added that it now means that Caribbean students wishing to study at universities in India can pursue their studies without much of the red tape they encountered in the past.

  4. NO-NONSENSE, you are a pathetic sheep-like Pratt. Many of the majority were bribed with lumber, galvanise and building materials, cash handouts and promises of jobs and other goodies. Its my interpretation that that action amounted to a rigged election, at the least this action was a criminal act.

    Your certainly one of those in the Unity Liars Party who are encouraged to own the stupidity, “together now” ‘follow the leader’ into a Marxist regime held government, that is packed with jerks just like you, clones of a lying leader.
