Our collection of CXC CSEC English A short stories winning the annual award


I am very proud of our archive collection of the CXC CSEC English A short stories that won the annual award. I know that in the greater scheme of things, it might not really matter much, but still, I am very proud of it.

I guess my satisfaction and pride in the collection comes from the great amount of work that it took to get the collection together. It was not easy. We literally had to hunt down these short stories. This collection of CXC CSEC English A short stories spans twelve (12) years of exams from 2001 to 2012.

My goal is to collect all the CXC short stories from 2000 onward. Now, some would ask if I have nothing better to do with my time. But, I think it is a wonderful resource for CXC CSEC English A students to have a collection like this available to them. They can read these stories and get a sense of the kind of language use that CXC wants and how good CXC CSEC English A exam short stories are constructed.

The collection is not complete.

Our CXC CSEC short story collection is not complete however. We are still missing the short story that won CXC CSEC English A annual award in 2000. So, if you have that short story hanging around, and would like to donate a copy of it to our collection, we would be very happy to accept.

Will this be/is this already published?

Or is this online?

My story is the 2001 story.
