The Lagos State government on Friday directed Junior Secondary School (JSS) 3 students who had registered for National Examination Council (NECO)’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to resume on Monday.
The state government had earlier directed SS3 and Technical Studies (TEC3) students to resume on August 3, to enable them to prepare for their forthcoming West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and National Business and Technical Examinations Board (NABTEB) examinations.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folashade Adefisayo, said only those students who had registered for the NECO’s BECE scheduled to begin on August 24 would resume on Monday.
Adefisayo also said that other JSS 3 students waiting to write BECE organised by the Lagos State Examinations Board would soon be informed on the dates of their examination.
The commissioner said administrators of both public and private schools are expected to ensure full compliance with the COVID-19 guidelines for schools re-opening in their respective schools.
She said the state government’s officials would be on ground to monitor situations in all schools across the state.
