Students in Senior Secondary School one and two are no longer allowed to take the external West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), the National Examination Council (NECO), or the National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB).
The Federal Ministry of Education sent a circular to principals of federal unity schools informing them of the situation.
On Friday, the circular was signed by Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, the ministry’s Director of Senior Secondary Education, and verified by Ben Bem Goong, the ministry’s Director of Press and Public Relations.
The circular read
“The ministry’s attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to its directive on (the) writing of external examinations such as NABTEB (NTC and NBC), WASSCE, NECO (SSCE) 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 to have written 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.”
