FG prohibits SS1, SS2 students from writing WASSCE, NECO, NABTEB

The federal government has announced a ban on written external examinations for students in senior secondary schools one and two.

The federal ministry of education said SS1 and SS2 students are prohibited from participating in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and other exams conducted by the National Examination Council (NECO) and the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).

In a circular, the ministry’s Director, Senior Secondary Education, Hajia Binta Abdulkadir said principals of federal unity schools should take the directive seriously.

According to the circular, signed by the Director of Press and Public Relations, Ben Bem Goong, on Friday, any student caught having written any of the above examinations in SS1 or SS2 classes will be expelled from the college.

The circular read, “The ministry’s attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to its directive on (the) writing of external examinations such as NABTEB (NTC and NBC), WASSCE, NECO (SSCE) by SS1 and SS2 students.

“Students who are involved in the practice find it difficult to settle down on serious studies. They become unruly and distract other students from achieving their goals.

“Any student caught to have written any of the above examinations in SS1 or SS2 classes will be expelled from the college. All students must write these examinations after they have been duly registered for the examination by the college.

“All students of Federal Unity College should adhere strictly to the content of this circular. And Principals are advised to bring the content of this circular to the knowledge of all parents of the college.”
