Secretary for Department of Education

NCD Schools remain suspended

Dr Kombra referred to two circulars that were issued to all the provinces, all institutions and authorities before the National General Elections which gave guidelines to Education Boards and communities in making decisions for schools in relation to elections.

The first one was the Secretary’s Circular Instruction No 5; which specify exactly what schools and teachers should do, prior to the elections, during and after elections.

Gr 10 exam set for 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.
