Students in Senior Secondary School one and two are no longer allowed to apply for and take the external West African Senior School Certificate Examination, the National Examination Council, or the National Business and Technical Examinations Board.
This was stated in a circular sent to federal unity school principals by the Federal Ministry of Education.
It was signed by the ministry's Director Senior Secondary Education, Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, and was named In the circular with no: FME/DBSE/US/DOC/III/16.
Ben Bem Goong, the Director of Press and Public Relations, affirmed the circular on Friday. Any SSS One and Two students who take the exams risked being expelled by the government.
This, according to the education ministry, would help to promote decorum and raise educational standards in schools.
“The ministry's attention has been called to the flagrant disobedience of its order on the writing of external examinations such as NABTEB (NTC and NBC), WASSCE, and NECO (SSCE) by SS1 and SS2 students,” the circular stated.
Students that are participating in the practice have a hard time focusing on their schoolwork. They become obnoxious and obstruct other students' efforts to achieve their objectives.
“Any student found writing any of the aforementioned exams in SS1 or SS2 classes would be expelled from the college.” These exams must be taken by all students after they have been properly registered by the college.
“All Federal Unity College students should strictly follow the content of this circular. Principals are also encouraged to share the contents of this circular with all of the college's parents.”
