Library & Research

The Record and Information Department of the Overseas Examinations Commission (OEC) compiles statistical data on External Secondary Examinations done in Jamaica, including those from the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC) and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). It also compiles information on the performance of Examination Centres across Jamaica. This statistical data is made accessible to the public and includes:

  • Territorial statistics which provide the cumulative results for each subject attempted; the total number of candidates (categorised by gender) who sat the subjects in Jamaica and the grades received.
  • School related statistics that provide insight to the total number of students (categorised by gender) who sat each subject from a given institution and the grades received.
  • Entry data which provides an overview of the total number of candidates registered in Jamaica in any given year and the total number of subjects undertaken by candidates.

In addition to providing statistics and related data, the OEC’s Library offers on-site access to computers and internet for researchers. The Research Facilities permit photocopying (at a cost) in accordance with Copyright Laws.

Persons wishing to use the Library and Research facilities are required to submit their requests in writing. These requests will incur a nominal fee and are honoured strictly by appointment to ensure user convenience and optimal resource management.
