The schedule of the scholarship examination of class five in government primary schools of the country has been changed.  

The exam, which was supposed to be held on December 29, will be held on December 30 as per the new routine.

Mohammad Nazrul Islam, Assistant Director (General Administration) of the Directorate of Primary Education (DPE), revealed this information on Tuesday (December 13), a media report disclosed the information.

The primary scholarship examination was supposed to be held on December 29. The date has been changed following local government elections in different districts. As per the new decision, the exam will be on December 30, said the assistant director of the DPE.  

The government started primary education completion (PEC) examination for the students of class five nationally in 2009. From then, the scholarship was given based on results of the students. Before that students sat for the examination separately. The examination, however, was not held in the last two years due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Killexams : Senate education committee chair wants stiff punishment for examination malpractice

From Joe Effiong, Uyo

The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Education, Dr Akon Eyakenyi, has lamented that the menace of examination malpractice in Nigeria has resulted in institutions of learning producing half-baked graduates whose performance in the work environment is below average.

Consequently, Senator Eyakenyi has called for the prosecution of exam malpractice perpetrators in line with the country’s extant laws, in order to act as a deterrent to others,

Speaking during the national sensitisation workshop on examination malpractice in Nigeria organised by the National Examination Council (NECO) in conjunction with the National Assembly on Monday in Uyo, with the theme: The Role of Educational Stakeholders in Tackling Examination Malpractice in Nigeria, Eyakenyi said: “There is no need to overemphasise the devastating effects of examination malpractice on our educational system.”

“This widespread practice which has permeated virtually every sector of our educational system has eroded third-party confidence in certifications and qualifications issued by Nigerian examination bodies and other competent institutions thereby causing us national embarrassment.

“We must be seen as being serious with punishing deviant behaviours in line with extant laws. If tutors, lecturers, examiners, invigilators or students as the case may be are made to face penalties for examination malpractices, a message would have been sent”.

The senator who is the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom State, stressed that all stakeholders including, the parents, teachers, security agencies, and anti-graft agencies have a role to play in tackling the dreaded monster of examination malpractices across the country.

She said that lawmakers would continue to put in place workable legislation to help combat examination malpractices and as well ensure the smooth running of the education system.

Declaring the event open, the Minister of State for Education, Mr Goodluck Opiah also lamented that examination malpractices had produced learners who could not defend their certificates.

He called on relevant stakeholders including students to show commitment to the fight against examination malpractices

“The government must develop a policy in regards to such acts and punish offenders. Education is the responsibility of all therefore; all hands must be on deck to ensure total elimination of the act,” Opiah added.

Prof. Ibrahim Dantani Wushishi, Registrar and Chief Executive National Examinations Council (NECO) in his address said one of the biggest challenges bedevilling the conduct of public examinations now is the issue of examination malpractice.

“No doubt, examination malpractice has the tendency to discourage hard work among serious students, lowers educational standards, discredit certificates, and lead to the production of quacks, thereby affecting the manpower needs of the nation.

We must therefore take collective responsibility to rid them of this bad habit of wanting to cut corners”. He said.

Killexams : Liberating Learning

As the Sun had its last loveliest smile, winter, the loneliest season of the year has already begun. With almost every facet of life hit by its harshness, education occupies the top slot. Likely to be announced soon, do vacations end the vagaries of the weather, writes Tasavur Mushtaq

Comparatively calm for the remaining period of the year, issues concerning education erupt elusively with the end of September equinox. A month later, it reaches its zenith in late November. With mercury plummeting more and more, voices get shriller. Proposals are propagated to pressure the winter vacations of educational institutions.  Given the attention, it seems to be the only issue, once a year that schools and students face in Kashmir. However, the government has its way to wield power. Inviting both, bouquets and brickbats, the delay in the decision leaves stakeholders watching the weatherman, watchfully.

If the latest and the last conversation of the Director of School Education Kashmir (DSEK), Tasaduq Hussain Mir with the media is recollected, he said the decision to shut schools has been left to the weather conditions. “Winter vacations in Kashmir valley are subject to the weather conditions,” Mir said, adding that “the school Education Department will take a call on winter vacations only when the weather conditions deteriorate or there will be minus temperatures here.”

If senior officials of DSEK are believed, the aim to extend class work is always aimed to “fill the learning gaps”. Elaborating on “weather conditions”, an official said, it means “heavy snowfall”, which will make the movement difficult.

Interestingly, a few days later, the department submitted the winter vacation proposal for schools in a phased manner from December 1, 2022, to the government. The last closure of classes as per the proposal had been scheduled for December 10, 2022, a few days ahead of what was proposed last year.

A process is followed for every file in the system, which usually takes its own time. However, in this case, within the next 24 hours, the government decided to have vacations in a phased manner from December 6, and the last phase would commence on December 19, 2022.

The Practice

An age-old practice, this routine resumes annually. Over the years, closing schools have emerged as more important an exercise than actually running them. If the last statement of DSEK is taken at face value, there is no reason to doubt the good intention. But there is a general perception, records may substantiate that for almost every influential individual in the system of the erstwhile state, there is a teacher at home. It was more visible when Darbar used to move, fully and formally.

Early or delayed vacations are a subsidiary issue. A part of an academic calendar. In any case, a matter of a few days. But the kind of attention it gets from people, professionals and politicians shows our misplaced priorities. As uncertainties loom large, vacations, otherwise an administrative issue has emerged as more of a power tussle, leaving our children in chaos.

The Problems

With almost 11 months of the year over, there is always an attempt to fill the “learning gaps”, in the last leg. On the contrary, “infrastructural gaps” continue to mock the official machinery for decades now.

Going by the ground reality, a cursory look, there is a complete mismatch between the educational institutions, managed by two different entities in Kashmir. Diagonal to each other, interestingly the decisions are taken by those where lies the ownership of weaknesses. Every year, like the harshness of the weather, there is little change in the state and status of schools.

In any case, Srinagar is not the yardstick, even if it has a better picture to put forward. Think about a student studying in a rural region. The first tragedy he faces is when trees shed their leaves in the fall. He loses his last resort, which had been his shade in the scorching heat. Out in the open to study, he struggles with the winter vagaries. Not only before vacations but even long after when schools resume their operations in spring.

Caught between safety and the school, like the weather, the life of a student becomes unpredictable. The dip in temperature is not proportional to the predictions of the weatherman. Promises do not postpone the predicament.

Face to face with other worries of life, a primary class student in Mati Handoo village of Kokernag is oblivious to the benefits someone is talking about in Srinagar. Neither, this makes sense to a kid in Machil. He is careless about your calculations. It is just a burden on him. He will understand the “gaps” only when he will have the learning in the first place. And that too for the remaining part of the year as well. In this crisis, teachers don’t make a separate row, they are part of this picture, pathetically.

On the other side of the story, in vogue till the mid-seventies, the March session has been implemented in Kashmir. With this order, the annual examinations for this year have been shifted to March 2023. The wisdom of this decision is to sync the academic calendar of Jammu and Kashmir with the National Academic Calendar. Indeed, a thought-out decision. But given the geographical disadvantages and tedious topography of the valley being taken into the consideration, the initiative is likely to have impediments, at least initially.

Already segregated into two segments, the Kashmir plains will have an examination in mid-March, while the snowbound areas have been scheduled for mid-April. Ideally required to have a single date sheet for the entire process, there are apprehensions that the winter would last longer and consume the examination schedule.  The summer zone of Jammu has no such issue to deal with. An official who spent his entire life in the education sector says, “Would Jammu wait for climatic conditions of Kashmir and allow postponement of examination.”

Besides, the conduct of the examination, the allied activities would have to be carried out in the main academic session. This was not the case until 2021. As reports reveal, more than 500 teachers are deputed to evaluate answer papers of students, and the entire process would be carried out in winter, a lean period, but now the officials said: “that has to be done in the summer months.” The next session would commence, if done smoothly not before June and would culminate in late November, giving around six months of formal functioning to the schools.

The Priority

Always planning to use these months of hibernation productively, barring a “failed” initiative of “winter schooling” once, there has been no forward movement, ever.

In most of Europe, where winter is harsher, schools don’t shut in winter and interestingly take off in summer. It is not only an official dictum but a well-planned decision, supported by a meticulous system. They believe that in winter students can’t go out at ease for recreational activities and thus provide better conditions in schools. Resultantly the less productive time of the year is used in classrooms, and when summers shine, students are out for their vacations. This way, overall development is ensured with comfort and safety.

Though the comparison made is incomparable. But, it could at least give some sort of semblance of how systems function and functionaries act.

There is a need to comprehend that an official order on the table won’t affect the temperature of the place. Similarly, claims don’t make a case.

The Prudence

Proactive during the days when the closure is to be decided, the department has a responsibility of actually running government educational institutions respectfully for an entire year. Besides, managing privately run educational institutions well within the guidelines.

In a place where winter is a permanent feature, a well-planned holiday calendar is required which does not need to be discussed, every day and every year. It is a perpetual phenomenon and needs a permanent solution. Kashmir is not the only place to have winters.

As witnessed, the private players have their way, always. With the huge inflow of students and well-managed infrastructure in place, their presence in the market is related to the return on investment. Off late, many major businessmen have added education to their already vast kitty of business enterprises.  No harm in having better schools managed by private players, but has the government decided to run its schools for only regulatory norms?

Having been entrusted with running more than 10,000 government schools, including 5710 primaries, 3894 middle, 805 secondary, and 378 senior secondary schools, there is a need to include their aspirations and agendas as well before taking decisions. In comparison, private educational institutions are roughly around 2000, taking the percentage to 20 per cent only. It looks more like a government department working for the private sector.

No report would substantiate the claim that whenever a strategic decision was taken, the weightage of the outcome was tilted towards the government schools. Never a voice has been raised to talk about their difficulties. When the snow will melt and winters would be over, privileged ones would go to schools, cameras would roll to click resumption and everything would be claimed hunky-dory. Somewhere, forlorn and faraway, away from the glaze of cameras students of state-owned schools would have their crisis to face. Their winter never ends.

Post Script

Winter in Kashmir is not a sentiment, it is the longest season of the year, which even extends to the margins of March. Wet or dry, there are specific datelines which affect the temperature. Even on a dry day, there can be sub-zero conditions. Or a wet day would offer a positive temperature on a Celsius scale. It is a climatic condition which needs no approval to be wet or dry.

As they say, ‘if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail’. Likewise, a student is not a file, which requires remaining movement across the tables. Progressive measures need to be taken, positively, for whole-year operations.

The men who manage things at the topmost level too were students of their times. Not all of them would be from plains as well. They too have faced terrains and travesties.

Think beyond the contours of cities and towns. The real beneficiary belongs somewhere else. A respectful culture in a class would help children to reciprocate in the same way. The basics need no favours. Providing teachers only is not the job done. Education entails emancipation.

Thought is needed for children who had to endure difficulties around the year. A moment for teachers who have to tread terrains. Beyond the boredom of bureaucracy, there are bountiful beautiful souls, waiting to have better facilities to fight the onslaught of nature, not only now, but forever.

Killexams : NECO, NASS, stakeholders’ brainstorm on exam malpractice

Worried by the increased cases of exam malpractices, the National Examinations Council (NECO) and the National Assembly recently commenced sensitization exercises nationwide on the effects of the menace on the education sector and the society at large.

The stakeholders called for diligent prosecution of exam cheats and their collaborators, noting that cancelling results of exam cheats appear not to be serving as a deterrent. 

NECO and the stakeholders stated this at a one-day national sensitization workshop in Lagos on examination malpractices in Nigeria with the theme “The role of education stakeholders in tackling examination malpractices.”

The workshop had in attendance the Nigeria Union of Teachers (NUT), the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), parents, school principals, Federal Ministry of Education, the House of Representatives Committee on Education and the Senate Committee on Education. 

In his address, the Registrar of NECO, Prof. Ibrahim Wushishi, observed that when one considers the evil effects of examination malpractices on the society at large, no stone should be left unturned in the fight to tackle it.

He added: “When candidates cut corners to pass an exam and are thereby awarded certificates not merited, whatever such a candidate becomes in the future, he or she is simply a quack. A quack is simply a danger to the society. 

“We are taking this exercise across all zones in the country and we are constantly upgrading our efforts and eliminating the menace. We de-recognize schools and we do hand over culprits to law enforcement agencies for prosecution.

“It is unfortunate that some parents would even stoop so low as to assist or encourage their children to engage in examination malpractices because we have lost our moral compass. Virtues that distinguish us as noble people have been thrown overboard. We are not relenting and we are surely going to beat the cheats to their game.”

The NECO registrar tasked stakeholders and the media to help preach against the menace and expose those involved; adding people should imbibe the spirit of hard work and merit.

In his speech, the Minister of Education, Mallam Adamu Adamu, represented by the Registrar of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB), Prof. Ishaq Oloyede, said the need to nip exam malpractices in the bud requires collective action of stakeholders. 

“It is a dangerous trend and a major problem affecting the conduct of public examinations. Many people are involved one way or the other. The way to go us to deploy ICT to curb it. Public examination bodies must be creative in adopting measures to curb it. We must demystify examinations too. 

“It was in the bid to make the conduct of public examinations more credible and not fraught with malpractices that the Federal Government allowed a little increase in the examination fees charged by WAEC and NECO. The increase is to jerk up the allowances paid invigilators, examiners and supervisors,” Adamu stated.

Meanwhile, the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education, Mr. David Adejo, observed that the issue of examination malpractices has been a long standing one that necessitated Prof. Chukwuemeka Ike to write a book titled “Expo 77”, decades ago to highlight the extent to which the menace had dealt with public examinations.

Adejo explained that the law prescribed a five-year jail term for offenders but that diligent prosecution is necessary.

He suggested that culprits of exam malpractice be made to face the law to serve as deterrence and added that no one should be spared, both the low and the might, must go to jail if found guilty.

“Examination bodies must synergies and strategies on how to curb exam malpractice in Nigeria. The use of technology may be the way out to assess and curb it,” Adejo stressed.

The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Basic Education, Hon. Julius Ihonvnere, stressed that parents aiding and abetting exam malpractices are merely destroying the future of their children.

Senator Akon Eyakenyi also suggested tightening the noose on exam cheats and their collaborators.

Exam candidates frown on school attendance diktat

View(s):

By Sohan Vipulananda  

Students, teachers, unions and principals have raised concerns about the Government decision to reimpose the compulsory 80% attendance rule after a lapse of two years.

The Ministry of Education has announced that it will reintroduce the requirement for GCE Advanced Level examination candidates.

Some children skip school and opt for tuition classes instead.

Students sitting for the GCE A/L examination in 2022, the GCE (O/L), and the Grade five scholarship exam have to fulfil an 80% attendance requirement. This rule had been suspended in the past two years due to the coronavirus disease pandemic. But now, the Education Ministry has decided to reintroduce the requirement from next year.

There has been a significant drop in students attending school in the few months before the AL examinations. These students have serious concerns.

Student Mr Anushan said some skip school and opt for tuition, because, for some subjects, for years there were no teachers.

Most students in Government schools complain of the same predicament.

“There is no point in going to school if there are no teachers,” Mr Anushan said.

Mr Sailendra, another A/L student studying maths, suggested that the 80% attendance requirement needs to be reduced, as the last few months is when they stay home for self-study.

Students have been complaining they do not have facilities to learn.

Mahinda Jayasinghe, the general secretary of the Ceylon Teacher Service Union, said that the Government should provide facilities.

The Sunday Times learns that some schools do not have space and ask the final year A/L students to stay home so that the new batch can attend school. At times, schools allow early study leave.

The lack of food and inability to afford high transport costs are preventing 15% of students from going to school.

“Most students do not have the means to travel and buy their study materials, how can they go to school?” Mr Jayasinghe asked.

In the Kelaniya education division 25% of students do not attend school because they do not have enough to eat at home.

Mr Jayasinghe also accepts that some teachers are lazy.

He said the Government should host workshops and seminars to Excellerate the standards of the teaching staff.

Mohan Parakrama Weerasinghe, Secretary of National Principals Union said students prefer tuition classes. He supports the decision of the ministry to re-introduce compulsory attendance. “We have done this before.’’

A principal from a leading school in Colombo says that 80% attendance requirement should not only be for A/L and Ordinary Levels, it should also be considered for the Grade 5 Scholarship.

Parents also say that attendance should be made compulsory. But some say sending their children to school is not affordable due to the soaring costs of transport and textbooks.

Generally in schools, students who do not meet the attendance requirement have to provide valid reasons to the principal and the ministry. Parents present a medical certificate for their children.
