Minimum Of 90% Attendance Prerequisite For WAEC , Osun State Govt Warns!!!

OSUN State Government has warned students against absenteeism, saying a 90 percent school attendance by senior secondary students is a condition to sit for the May/June 2013 West African Senior Secondary School Examinations, WASSSCE.
State Deputy Governor, Mrs. Titi Laoye-Tomori, gave the warning in Osogbo during an interactive session with principals of secondary schools.
She cited cases where secondary schools students resorted to commercial motorcycle operations during school hours, saying “a student that refuses to comply with a 90 percent attendance requirement would not be allowed to sit for the final examinations.”
She urged principals to be diligent with record-keeping to enable them identify those who stayed away from classes.
Laoye-Tomori, who doubles as the Commissioner for Education said: “From the statistical standpoint, out of 44,388 students, who sat for the 2010 May/June WASSCE, 6,773 students made credit level passes in five subjects, including English and Mathematics.
“In 2011 May /June WASSCE, 54,810 students sat for the examinations, while 11,949 students recorded credit level passes in five subjects, including English and Mathematics. This is an improvement of 76.4 percent.”
Laoye-Tomori, who doubles as the Commissioner for Education, reminded principals that “no state religion has been adopted,” hence extremism has long been banished.
Consequently, religion should not divide the indigenes and residents of the state.
