Junior Secondary students take their final examination at the end of their third year in the school. These examinations are external organized by the National Examinations Council (NECO). However, a large proportion of every studentâ€™s final grade comes from his continuous assessment, which is obtained from the school.
Continuous assessment has three principal sources, viz: end of year examinations, end of term examinations and regular classroom tests of various kinds. It is very important that student take their tests and examinations seriously since they constitute a significant part of their final result.
