MOE Advances Stringent Measures To Curtail Mass Failure In Public Exams

By Winnie Dixon/LINA

MONROVIA, December 17 (LINA) -Deputy Education Minister for Instruction Hawa Goll- Kotchie, has announced  that all students who failed the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) Ninth Grade exam will not be promoted to the next class.

She said the ministry and WAEC will begin tracking the records of students from 8th grade to ascertain their eligibility to sit the WAEC test.

Making the disclosure Wednesday at the Ministry of Information daily Ebola briefings, she revealed that this is part of measures put in place to minimize the mass failure of students who sit  the WAEC exams and ensure an improved education system for Liberians.

“This time we will not wait for your ninth or twelve grade reports, but we ourselves will go after it because we want quality and not quantity,” she stressed.

It can be recalled that in 2013, President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf described the Liberian education system as a ‘mess’ due to the mass failure of over 23, 000 students that sat the entrance exam of the University of Liberia.
