According to a release issued and signed by the Director, Exams Board, Mr. Oluwafemi Hassan, the Screening Test is the only measure used for placement of pupils into the State Model/Upgraded Junior Secondary Schools.
He explained that the screening would be conducted through Computer-Based Test and the regular Pencil-Based Test, which is the usual pencil and computer answer sheet test. He added that candidates were at liberty to choose the version of the test they wished to be examined with.
While saying that the test was the only yardstick for admission of pupils into JSS1 in any of the state’s 15 model colleges/upgraded secondary schools, Ariyo noted that registration of candidates could be done through a customised compact disc that would be issued by the state examination board after paying N10,000 for the form.
The Director, therefore urged the Parents, Guardians, Head Teachers and Proprietors to indicate the interest of their candidates by paying a sum of Ten Thousand Naira (N10,000) only to any of the following banks: Skye, Fidelity and First City Monument Bank.
