Kwara holds common entrance exam for Primary six students Saturday

Kwara State Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development said that Primary six students in the state Primary schools will sit for the Common Entrance Examination to gain admission into the Junior Secondary School (JSS) class in the state.

A statement signed by the Press Secretary in the Ministry, Peter Amogbonjaye, said that the examination will be held in the 16 local government areas across the state from 8 a.m.

“This is to inform the general public that the Common Entrance (Placement) Examination into Junior Secondary Schools across the 16 Local Government Areas of the State is scheduled to be held on Saturday, August 26, 2023.

 “The Common Entrance Examination is expected to be held by 8:00 a.m. in the various examination centres across the state.

“A statement issued by the Ministry of Education and Human Capital Development, today, warned Headteachers/Principal and pupils to shun examination malpractices in any form.

“It is, however, instructive to state that the placement examination is fully sponsored by the state government and as such, any Principal/Headteacher caught collecting illegal money from the pupils would be made to face the full wrath of the law.

“Members of the general public are hereby enjoined to note that the examination has not been shifted, please.

“Also, there will be vehicular and human movement across the state due to the common entrance examination (placement examination) that is going to be held tomorrow, August 26, 2023,” the statement said.
