QUESTION Is CXC accepted in England?

If a child only obtained four CXC subjects and a school leaving certificate, is him/her edigible to study or work in england?


ANSWER: by R. Phang

Let’s see, in my honest opinion that answer will be determined by the schools of choice. And the type of job/career choice he/she has in mind.

Not divert too much but, did you know that the Caribbean School Examination Council (CXCs) is a business based education system that was stemmed from several overseas based organization (namely, School Certificate, High School Certificate, common entrance, CSEC, GCE Ordinary Level and GCE Advanced Level) which all originated in the United Kingdom by the high end Universities, which means CXC should still be acceptable in England but maybe not by all Universities, College or any other educational institute.

It is important that you consider the following steps to ensure a smooth transition.

First, you need to contact the various schools of choice find out if they offer the area in which he wants to pursue and they will in turn advise you on their requirements including overseas matriculate acceptance and procedures. Once that is done please follow all instructions provided to you and have them completed in a timely manner.

Once accepted, you will them need to have a copy of the acceptance letter to take to the interview at the UK Embassy known as the:

British High Commission
28 Trafalgar Rd
Kingston, Jamaica.

In order to get an appointment you will need to visit the British High Commission website (gov.uk) to apply for the appropriate visa.

When you do get on to the site, follow the prompts which will take you to the student/ work visa section. Here you will be ask to complete an online assessment under the Tier 4 Student Adult Visa section.

Please read the information carefully, the Tier 4 Student Adult Visa Assessment is for candidates over the age of 16 years looking to study at any United Kingdom licensed education institute full time. This type of visa offers flexibility and participation in courses for up to 6 months.

One thing you will appreciate is, the gov.uk site gives you a list of dos and don’ts. So you’ll be happy to know that tier 4 allows the student to work once he is over 16 years with some limitation.

In addition to the consent from parents or guardian, you will have to prove financial capabilities to cover the expense for school and accommodation. The earliest application is accepted 3 weeks in advance. Fees are also applicable and you’ll also have to pay for healthcare charges as a part of the visa applications.

This should give you a good start.


Regards,

R. P.
