COVID-19: Federal government grants schools authorization to take third term exams

According to Federal Government, it was stated that schools operating an international curriculum, will be allowed to take their third term exams online.

Minister of State for Education, Emeka Nwajiuba acknowledged this while speaking on Monday during the daily briefing of the Presidential TaskForce on COVID-19 pandemic.

As stated by Nwajiuba, this had become essential, as many private schools are licenced to run foreign curriculum, most especially for children of expatriates and diplomats.

“Private Schools that run International Curriculum are free to conduct their third term examinations online. There are private schools licenced to run foreign curriculum essentially for children of expatriates and diplomats.

“If such schools are able to host online classes for the curriculum they operate and they choose to use the period to cover their syllabus, it is permitted,” the Minister said.
