A total of 144,275 pupils wrote this year’s Placement Test for admission into the public Junior Secondary Schools run by the Lagos State Government last Saturday.

A breakdown of the figure showed that 91,500 pupils were from the public primary schools and 52,775 pupils from private schools took part in the test.

Monitoring the exercise, the Chairman, Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr Ganiyu Oluremi Sopeyin, noted that there was a lot of improvement in this year’s exercise – including the customisation of the answer scripts (OMR sheets) to bear the names of each candidate.

Next year, he said, Exams Identication Sheets would be prepared for pupils that will take part in the test to address the challenge of searching for centres.

He decried the situation whereby parents and guardians searched for the centres of their wards on the test day, particularly those attending private schools.

He scored the performance of all stakeholders that took part in the test 99 per cent as challenges were quickly and easily addressed.

He said the government would not relent in its efforts to provide qualitative and quantitative education in the state.
