South Sudan Teachers Regulation Body Organizes Mock Examination for Secondary Schools to Address Education Sector Challenges
The South Sudan Teachers Regulation Enforcement Agency-Mock Department for Secondary Schools has initiated a new step in readdressing the issues affecting the education sector, particularly in private schools. The agency aims to ensure adequate training of teachers, improved learning environments, sanitation, and the promotion of free education for female teachers to address the gender disparities in the school system.
As part of its efforts towards improving the education sector, the agency is planning to organize a mock examination for candidates sitting the national examination this year. The agency has requested all schools to participate in ensuring that examination processes are adequately managed by collecting examination fees from students and submitting the fees to the finance officer Mr. Bidal Benjamin Micheal of Eloi Secondary School in Joppa.
The Head Teachers of schools have been requested to start informing candidates and collecting examination fees immediately as the students may resume their 2nd term. The schools are required to set all exams and prepare marking guides for their respective candidate class teachers, which should be submitted to the program manager in Juba Proper International College, Mr. Opoka Sunday Marcelo. The examination committee will then compile and type the exams to prevent examination leakage.
Teachers within the member schools will be responsible for invigilating, marking, and compiling results in other schools within the member schools. All member schools will be examination centers, and their teachers will be responsible for marking and collecting results. The schools will not be charged, but candidates will be required to pay a fee of 5000ssp. The examination is scheduled to take place from August 21 to August 25, 2023.
The interested schools have been requested to confirm their membership within one week after receiving the important notice. The Executive Director of the South Sudan Teachers Regulation Enforcement Agency-Mock Department for Secondary Schools, Xemisi Emmanuel, expressed his satisfaction with the initiative and called on all schools to participate fully in the mock examination to ensure that candidates are adequately prepared for the national examination.
