The Federal government of Nigeria, has banned all students of Senior Secondary School one and Senior Secondary School two, from participating in all external exams such as the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB), and even the National Examination Council (NECO) exams.
The information was contained in a circular that was issued to all Federal Unity school titled, FME/DBSE/US/DOC/III/16. The circular, that was signed by the Ministry of Education's director for senior secondary schools, stated how this new initiative would ensure decorum and also improve the educational standard of the country.
The reason for the new initiative was because the ministry said, student who failed to complete their secondary school were found to be unruly and also a distraction to other student. The ministry also threatened to ensure the expulsion of any student found to have taken external exams from their SSS2 and SSS1 classes.
The circular was printed and sent to all Federal Unity secondary school in a bid to let make them aware and also make them inform parents of students. If your lad is still in SSS2 or SSS1, I hope this information was informative to you. Be sure to share with your friends and family to make them aware of this new information.
