Reasons Why FG Shouldn't have Ban SSS1, SSS2 Students From Taking External WASSCE, NECO, NABTEB

In Nigeria, the official entering age of students' to the primary level of education is six years while the expectant passing out age is Eleven years. For pupils into secondary schools, the duration is between eleven to seventeen years of age.

However, there are circumstances which usually delays the child from entering both the primary and the secondary levels of education at the required age thereby making them to stay longer in either of this levels of education.

For this reason, it has become a usual practice by parents and the students alike whom have fallen into this category to always look for an escape route out of the wasted years in other to meet up with certain age at which a certain goals must be accomplished.

Therefore, the only way out of this age barrier at which a child ought to have finished his Secondary Education in other to meet up with the higher education, is to sit for the external Schools leaving Examinations as the child's success may determine whether he may cross to higher institutions or better still to complete this level officially.

Other reason for writing this Examinations is the fact that some parents do wish to know their wards capabilities at certain level of his Secondary Education,hence the need for this typed of arrangements.

Also some children that are exceptionally brilliant in school are always been advised to sits for this Examination to access his or her ability.

With the Federal Government banning the SS1 and SS2 students from writing these Examinations, it is a kind of infringement on the right of both the child and the parents who bankroll the financial obligations of the Child's Education.

It is therefore advised that Government should review it's stand on this decision since no Nigerian Government runs absolute free Education .
