FG BANS SS ONE AND TWO STUDENTS FROM WRITING EXIT EXAMS

The Federal Government has banned secondary school students not in terminal classes from applying and sitting for the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), the National Examination Council (NECO), and National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) across the country.

In a circular signed by the Director of Senior Secondary School, Binta Abdulkadir, says that any student, particularly in public schools, not in the terminal classes found to have written the examination, henceforth, would be expelled from the school immediately to serve as a deterrent to others planning to embark on such actions.

Adding that the decision to restrict students in Senior Secondary (SS) 1 and 11 classes from sitting for external examinations was taken to maintain decorum and boost standards of education in schools.

It further stated that findings revealed that such students often return to classes and distract their peers from learning., stressing that strict enforcement would be carried out to prevent contravention across the country.
