Going to school and evaluating degree

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Have any one from the Caribbean evaluated their CXC or degree? I have both CXCs and a associate degree. If anyone got a similar evaluation done, can you please tell me the U.S. Equivalent please. I know I may have to get an evaluation done but I would like to know what it's worth in the mean time.

CXC- as long as you have 5 passes (1, 2 or 3) it's equivalent to a HS Diploma.

It depends on what your degree is in and where you obtained it. May sure to get a detailed transcript from the school and then they will do a course by course evaluation.

I used www.e-valreports.com and they were quick and professional.

Ok. Thank you. did you evaluate a degree too or just CXC? My problem is that my degree is tourism management, mostly business related course and I have science subjects in cxc, so I'm wondering if I should just evaluate the CXC only and get into a community college and do some prerequisites since I want to get into health care or it wouldn't matter which as long as a level of education which is high school or higher here in the U.S.

I'm running from having to pay two currier fees for each, the transcript for cxc transcripts and the degree from my college I wish the evaluating service had live chat so I could ask if it's worth getting the cxc evaluated since I have an associated degree. Hope I'm not sounding too confusing.

I did only my CXC- i moved here when i was 16.

My friend however had CXC results plus credits from utech. She was in the same situation as you (did tourism in Jamaica and switched to medical field up here). I know she got both evaluated and the credits from Jamaica help with some of the general requirements. If you did well in school out there I'd advised you to get them evaluated- they may help shorten the time you spend in school up here.

Yes. I believe in education even if you will not work. Anything can happen. Best to be qualified.
