Lagos postpones BECE, entrance exam dates


The Lagos State Ministry of Education has announced a shift in the dates for the Screening Test into the State Model Colleges and Upgraded Schools, the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the Placement Test into JSS 1 in all Public Secondary Schools.

But no new date has been fixed.

The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Mrs Adebunmi Adekanye said that the postponement was necessitated by the inability of many schools and private individuals to adhere strictly to the dictates of the new full e-registration system adopted by the Examinations Board this year which has made most of the data submitted incomplete.

The Examinations Board had replaced the manual registration with e-registration to further frustrate the activities of middle men who have been extorting unsuspecting parents/guardians.

According to the Permanent Secretary, “There’s is need to clean up the data with a view to bringing every candidate on board thus necessitating the shift”.

Adekanye who appealed for understanding, explained that the various examinations will not hold as earlier scheduled and a new date will be communicated later.

The Ministry said it regrets all inconveniences.
