The Federal Government  has officially banned students in Senior Secondary School 1 and 2 from sitting for external exams in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination, the National Examination Council, and National Business and Technical Examinations Board.

The government said the examinations are for students in the Senior Secondary School 3.

This was contained in a circular issued by Hajia Binta Abdulkadir, Director, Senior Secondary Education, Federal Ministry of Education to principals of the Federal Unity Schools, across the country.

It said, “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.

According to the circular, “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.’’
