“What we did previously was to interview the pupils and ask them to read an English text or write their names and so on and then place them into any of our public junior secondary schools.

He said writing the test had become imperative because of the state government’s quest for quality education, we decided for the first time to subject the primary six pupils to examination to test their eligibility for placement.

“This is part of efforts to ensure that only those who acquired the basic knowledge of primary school education are admitted into JSS I to improve the quality of learning.

“This in the long run will encourage primary school pupils to study hard to pass the common entrance examination and proceed to JSS I.
