Jamaica College currently has a programme to prepare students for CSEC exams in grades nine and ten. This year we will select thirty to forty (30-40) grade 9 students to sit  CSEC Human and Social Biology. In addition we will select thirty to forty (30-40) grade 10 students to sit CSEC Mathematics. Students are selected by their teachers and departments using performance criteria. The preparation classes for these programmes must be paid for by parents. We only have a few other selected subjects run by the school in preparation for examinations and therefore we will not enter students for other subjects, who are not specially selected. Students always have the option of entering as private candidates through the Overseas Examinations Commission which may include sitting an alternative to SBA paper.

Students sitting CSEC Mathematics at grade ten must immediately begin the CSEC Additional Mathematics course.

Students who attain a grade one in Mathematics will be allowed to drop the subject in grade eleven provided they are doing Add. Math or get special permission. Students attaining any other grade will be required to continue doing the subject and sit the CSEC examination again in grade eleven, unless otherwise given permission.

Students at any other grade level wishing to sit CSEC or CAPE subjects through the school, must receive permission from the Principal or Vice Principal.

Jamaica College prepares students to sit exit examinations at grades 11, 12 and 13. We continue to recommend this as the first choice of our Collegemen unless otherwise selected.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][/vc_tta_accordion][/vc_column][/vc_row]
