Federal Government bans Senior Secondary School Students in year 1 and 2 from taking external exams

The Federal Government has banned students in Senior Secondary School one and two from taking and applying for West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WAEC), the National Examination Council (NECO), and National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).

The Federal Ministry of Education released a circular to principals of federal unity schools which contained the ban.

The circular titled, FME/DBSE/US/DOC/III/16 and signed by the ministry’s Director Senior Secondary Education, Hajia Binta Abdulkadir.

 Ben Bem Goong, the Director of Press and Public Relations, confirmed it.

The federal government is ready to sanction and also expel any senior class student in year one and two who fails to abide by it. The ministry will maintain a good standard and decorum to improve education in schools, said Mr. Ben.

The circular read that the ministry’s attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to its directive on (the) writing of external examinations such as NABTEB, WASSCE, NECO 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 writing 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.
