No fewer than 500 senior secondary school three Muslim students on Sunday, October 20, 2019 sat for the 2019 Career Mentorship Program (CMP) scholarship examination organised by the Islamic group, Standard Bearers Islamic Organization (SB), Osun State branch.
Our correspondent gathered that the Muslim students who are in SS3 were tested in Mathematics and English Language across five centres in Osun and Ondo states.
The centres where the scholarship examination took places include; Oduduwa College, Ile Ife; Muslim Unity Secondary Academy, Akure; Islamic Model College, Iwo; Laro Middle School, Osogbo; and Ede Muslim High School, Ede.
Mr. Fatai Hassan, the Director of the CMP, said the placement test was smooth and hitch-free in all the five centres.
He disclosed that any student who had the highest score in the scholarship examination will be given free WAEC and JAMB fees.
He disclosed further that students who had 50% and above will also be given awards.
Hassan said the aim of the program is to develop the minds of the Muslim students by creating a healthy rivalry among the students.
Similarly, the Chief examiner of CMP, Mr. Abdullahi Muslim, said the examination was a great success in all the five centres.
He said the questions that were set are set according to WAEC standard and they are obviously not beyond the capacity of the Senior Secondary School three which is a criteria to sit for the examination.
Muslim added that he was impressed with the conduct of the examination which showed that the students were ready for the test.
A candidate, Durojare Ibrahim, told our correspondent after his first paper that the examination was well organised, adding that the questions were tough.
Ibrahim said he hope to come out in flying colours in the examination.
A parent, Mr. Ayodele Adam, commended the organisers for conducting a hitch-free examination.
Adam said he has an assurance that such program will enhance the academic performance of the Muslim students.
