Majority of prospective teachers in Nigeria have passed the Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE), a mandatory test for teachers organised by the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN).

Out of the 15,753 future teachers who sat for the November 2023 PQE, only 10,636 passed, representing a success rate of 72.9%.

The TRCN Registrar, Prof. Josiah Ajiboye, announced the results during an interactive session with journalists on Monday.

Ajiboye disclosed however that 3,963 teachers failed the November 2023 Professional Qualifying Examination.

“A total of 15,753 sat the examination in 38 centres across the country; out of this, we have 10,636 that passed, which is about 72.9 per cent and those that failed are 3,963,” Ajiboye said.

Ajiboye did not provide specific reasons for the high failure rate, but he did acknowledge the need for improvement in the teaching profession.

He, however, confirmed that some candidates were absent from the exam, while others had their results cancelled due to suspected malpractices.
