Gr 10 exam set for June 7

Secretary for Department of Education, Dr Uke Kombra, has confirmed that the Grade 10 Written Expression Examination is set for Thursday, June 7.

More than 50 thousand Grade 10 students nationwide will sit for the examinations.

72,000 Grade 10 students will be expected to sit the exam in 322 provincial high and secondary schools. 

These include the permitted schools that are not under the National Education System.

While there was no record of major incidences of malpractice or cheating during examinations last year, Dr Kombra has issued warnings ahead of the June 7th exams to teachers and students.

Dr Kombra is urging all provincial education advisers and examination supervisors, senior secondary school inspectors, guidance officers, principals and head teachers of all schools to be vigilant and security conscious of the confidentiality of the examination paper.

This is to avoid any form of malpractice that may compromise the examination results.

On that note, parents, guardians and teachers are asked to give their utmost support to the Grade 10 students to see the successful completion of the exams for the lower secondary school certificate.
