The General and Technical Proficiencies provide students with the foundation for further studies at the tertiary-level and entry to the workplace. The Council now offers a total of 33 subjects, that is, 28 subjects at General Proficiency and 5 at Technical Proficiency. Students who perform exceptionally well and fit the criteria are eligible for one of the many CSEC Regional Awards given by the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC).
