The Ministry of Education has announced a shift in the dates for Screening Test into the State Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools, the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and Placement Test into Basic One in all Public Secondary Schools.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs. Adebunmi Adekanye who announced the postponement, said it was necessitated by the inability of many schools and private individuals to adhere strictly to the dictates of the new full e-registration system adopted by the Examination Board.

According to Adekanye, the non-adherence to instructions led to incoherent data by applicants, hence the need to postpone the examinations to clean up the data.

“There is a need to clean up the data with a view to bringing every candidate on board, thus necessitating the shift,” she stated.

She recalled that the Examination Board had replaced the manual registration with e-registration to further frustrate the activities of middlemen who have been extorting money from unsuspecting parents.

Adekanye appealed for the understanding of applicants, explaining that the Screening Test earlier scheduled for Saturday, 8th June 2019; the Computer Based Test (CBT) which precedes the Paper/Pencil Test (PPT) scheduled for 3rd to 7th June 2019; the Placement Test scheduled to hold on the 13th July 2019 and the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) slated 25th June to 2nd July have all been postponed.
