News Updates


December 5, 2006

  • Where a CXC subject has an SBA component, this is worth 20% of the final grade.
  • The component is mandatory. Therefore failure to comply with this requirement by the deadline will mean that the student will receive the grade 'UNG' in that subject, even if he/she subsequently excels in the written paper(s).
  • Completed SBAs must be submitted to the teachers by Wednesday 28th February, 2007, to allow time for the work to be bound for final presentation and then sent to the CXC Office.
  • Teachers at Hillel Academy make themselves available to assist students both during class time and, by arrangement, after school. There is no additional charge for this.
