The Federal Government of Nigeria has banned students in Senior Secondary School one and two (SS1 and SS2) from participating in external examinations such as WASSCE, NECO and NABTEB.
This was made known in a circular issued to principals of federal unity schools by the Federal Ministry of Education.
“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”.
