This year, 31,500 students from 205 Secondary Schools including private and permitted schools and 6 National High Schools in the country have nominated to sit for the grade 12 Written Expression Examination which is scheduled for Monday, 2nd August, 2021.
“I confirm that the Department through the Measurement Services Division has already dispatched all the materials for the Grade 12 Written Expression Examination on time to all Provinces.
All Grade 12 students should have received their Written Expression Resource Booklet at 8am on Monday 26th July 2021 from their Schools of Nomination and read and prepare for the actual Written Expression Examination which has been scheduled for Monday 2nd August. By requirement, all students are given a week to prepare themselves well for the Written Expression Examination”.
All the Provincial Education Advisors (PEAs), Provincial Examination Supervisors, Senior Secondary Inspectors, Guidance Officers, Principals and Governing Councils must be vigilant and security conscious with the security of the Examination Materials and through the actual administration by following the rules enforced by the Measurement Services Division.
Everyone involved in the examination process are advised to prevent all tendencies towards any mal-practices that may compromise the results. They are also reminded that the penalty for cheating or assisting to cheat in national examinations is non-certification and requested all citizens to support fair examinations to all which is in our national interest.
“In light of the covid-19 and its variants, we need to be vigilant in taking care of ourselves by following the new normal protocols such as washing hands, wearing masks and the reasonable social distancing guidelines. Though vaccination is not mandatory, it is encouraged that we avail ourselves with the vaccinations where possible for the good of ourselves and the well-being of others.”
“I would like to wish every student in Grade 12, all the very best in their examination.”
