NPSE Slated for May 4

By Sulaiman Juldeh Bah

This year’s National Primary School Examination (NPSE) has been shifted from its traditional date of 5 May to 4 May following the announcement of a national cleaning exercise for 5 May.

Just when President Bio took over office, his first executive order the declaration of a national cleaning exercise slated for every first Saturday of every month.

The first Saturday cleaning therefore coincided with date set aside for the conduct of the NPSE examination, that which compelled officials of Ministry of Education and the West African Examination Council (WAEC) agreeing on the shifting of the date of the said examination.

Brima Michael Turay, public relations officer Ministry of Education, has confirmed that all is set for the conduct of the MPSE examination on Friday 4th May.

He disclosed that 120,000 pupils will be taking this year’s examination nationwide and that more schools with more sitting accommodations and facilities have been added as centers for the number of registered pupils.

To avoid challenges of limited question papers which incidentally had affected the credibility of last year’s examination, WAEC has caused the printing of 140,000 papers to serve the number of registered pupils and unregistered ones, who likely may show up at different examination centers.

He disclosed that examiners have been prepared for the examination, while the police would also be in attendance to provide security for examination materials and pupils as well.

He advised parents and guardians accompanying their children/wards not to put pupils under unnecessary pressure by hanging around examination centers and to make sure they keep a distance from such areas.
