The Federal Government of Nigeria has banned senior secondary school one and two from applying and taking the external West Africa Senior School Certificate Examination, National Examination Council (SSCE) and National Business and Technical Examination Board.
This was contained in a circular that was issued by the Federal Ministry of Education to principals of Federal Unity Colleges. The circular read, "the ministry's attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to it's directives in the writing of external examinations such as WASSE, NABTEB, NECO (SSCE) by SSS 1 and SSS 2 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 rewritten any of the above examinations in SSS 1 or SSS 2 classes will be expelled from the college. All students must write these examinations after they have been duly registered by the college".
"All Federal Unity Colleges should adhere to the content of this circular, and principals are advised to bring to the knowledge of all parents of the college the content of this circular".
