“The ministry’s attention has been drawn to the flagrant disregard to its directive on (the) writing of external examinations such as NABTEB (NTC and NBC), WASSCE, NECO (SSCE) by SS1 and SS2 students.

“Students who are involved in the practice find it difficult to settle down on serious studies. They become unruly and distract other students from achieving their goals.

“Any student caught to have written any of the above examinations in SS1 or SS2 classes will be expelled from the college. All students must write these examinations after they have been duly registered for the examination by the college.

“All students of Federal Unity College should adhere strictly to the content of this circular. And Principals are advised to bring the content of this circular to the knowledge of all parents of the college,” the circular read.

Meanwhile, Governor El-Rufai asked that JAMB abolish the low cut-off marks allotted to Northern students to enable them “work hard and compete”.

  1. This is a regressive policy. How about highly scholastic children who have developed ahead of their pairs?
    The youngest guy in my class back then was 14, he ended up among the best graduating student and the best programmer in our set. He is a successful programmer doing great today. You are saying such persons should rather wait till some other students where they dont need more than 5 marks to gain admission into unity school. NO way.
