Reports from Education District offices confirm an incident-free exercise of today’s Secondary Entrance Assessment examination.
The Education Ministry explains that there were absolutely no adverse reports concerning the conduct of the examination.
It adds that all teachers assigned as supervisors and monitors were at their posts on time which facilitated a prompt start to the exam at 9:00 am.
18,215 children from 545 schools wrote the SEA.
9,163 boys and 9,052 girls were tested on their skills in Mathematics, Language Arts and Creative Writing for placement into a Secondary School.
This will be the last year for students to be marked under the Continuous Assessment Component system following Cabinet’s decision to discontinue this component of the SEA.
