The Lagos State Government through its Ministry of Education has announced the 2019/2020 Entrance Examinations into the State Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools, the Placement Test into JSS 1 in all Public Secondary Schools across the State and the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
The Examinations are aimed at testing the applicants’ academic capabilities for their choices of classes in the State-owned Schools.
According to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs. Olatokunboh Adeleye, the Examinations have been re-scheduled as follows:-
Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE)

Speaking further on the conduct of the Examinations, the Permanent Secretary assured that results would be released in good time to enable successful candidates resume into their respective schools across the State at the beginning of the new academic session in September.
He further informed that admission will be strictly based on the candidates’ performance and vacancies in Schools.
She, therefore, urged parents/guardians to prepare their wards effectively for these examinations and ensure punctuality to examination venues, adding that the Lagos State Examinations Board Office is open for inquiries before the set dates.
It would be recalled that the Ministry of Education shifted the dates for these examinations in its bid to replace the manual registration with e- Registration of candidates so as to further ensure a hitch-free and transparent process, devoid of malpractices. (Daily Independent)
