The Sub-Committee of the School Examinations Committee (SUBSEC), met on Tuesday 17 October at CXC Headquarters in Barbados. Among the major decisions coming out of the meeting is the approval of several revised CAPE and CSEC syllabuses.
There was a complete revision of the CAPE Science Cognate – CAPE Biology, Chemistry and Physics syllabuses. The changes made to specific areas of each syllabus, namely, Specific Objectives, Rationale, Aims and Explanatory Notes. Two sections were also added: Suggestions for Teaching and Practical Approach. Each syllabus also had a reduction in the number of questions on Paper 02 to make it more psychometrically robust.
