New Partnership with GoGSAT.com and Go-Jamaica.com

Caribbean ExamsStudent preparations for CXC are destined to become so much easier with the recent partnership of The Gleaner Online and Caribbeanexams.com. The partnership will involve the CXC study guides published in the Youthlink and on www.youthlinkjamaica.com being incorporated in the GoGSAT.com owned Caribbeanexams.com. Together they will boost student access to online e-learning and exam preparation vehicles.

And Jamaica will not be the only beneficiary. Thousands of students and schools across the region will now be able to utilise the system to prepare for their pre high school examinations as well as the regional Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC).
According to Shalette East, vice president (operations), GoGSAT.com and Caribbeanexams.com “Caribbean students will benefit from the combination of GoGSAT.com and CaribbeanExams.com examination preparation capabilities”. Easy to follow examinations lessons and tests for Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) are already available for parents and students interested in exploring this online option.

Youth Link“The Gleaner Online is happy to partner with GoGSAT.com and Caribbeanexams.com. This agreement allows the Gleaner to forefill its mandate to expand eLearning initatives. For the last five years the Gleaner Online has been working to encourage schools/students to explore the Internet with its Go-Local in school project (golocaljamaica.com)” says Marlene Davis of the Gleaner Company.

The Gleaner, GoGSAT.com and CaribbeanExams.com will roll out the Caribbean’s largest eLearning platform immediately.
