Lagos ‘schools’ resume August 3

Following Federal Government’s announcement directing students in exit classes nationwide to resume for revision ahead of their forthcoming terminal examinations, Lagos State Government has directed SS3 and Technical Studies (TEC3) students in both day and boarding schools in the state to resume on Monday, August 3.

Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, explained that the directive became imperative due to the newly announced date by West African Examinations Council (WAEC) for the 2020 WASSCE, which is scheduled to commence on August 17.

“Only SS3 and TEC3 students are permitted to resume at day and boarding schools on the 3rd of August, for revision classes and examinations,” she noted.

The commissioner, therefore, enjoined schools in the state to follow the required public health guidelines and protocols for re-opening of schools for this category of students.

She stressed that while students in SS3 and TEC 3 will have the privilege of sitting for their examinations, the state government is considering the option of using first and second term exams performance or continuous assessment to promote students in other exit classes.
