EdoBEST has boost enrolment figure – Commissioner


The Edo Government says the introduction of its Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (EdoBEST) policy has increased the enrolment figure in common entrance/primary six examination in the state.

The Commissioner for Education in the state, Dr Joan Osa-Oviawe, made the assertion on Monday in Benin, while assessing the conduct of the 2022 common entrance/primary six certificate examination in the state.

Osa-Oviawe disclosed that no fewer than 90,000 pupils sat for the 2022 examination in the 445 centres across the state.

She said the candidates were from public and private primary schools and added that government planned to improve on the conduct of the examination in 2023.

The commissioner listed part of the planned improvement to include quick release of the primary six certificates.

“The ministry plans to improve on the conduct of the examination next year. Also, our goal is that by August, 2022, primary six certificates will be out,” said the commissioner.

She also said government had a plan to help parents know the cognitive ability of their children through a very robust analysis of their results.

The commissioner said she was satisfied with the conduct of the 2022 exercise, applauding the efforts of the examinations department in the ministry for making it a success.

“We monitored the various centres across Edo South Senatorial District and the examination started on time.

“This became necessary to ensure that they finished the exercise on time and went home on time,” she said.

Osa-Oviawe also commended parents of the pubils for obeying the rules guiding the examination, noting that examination was all about improvement.
