No End Of Term Exams For KG To J.H.S 3 Students – Ghana Education Service Directs School Heads
The Ghana Education Service (GES) has directed heads of basic schools across the country not to hold any form of examinations to assess its students at the end of the term.
According to the GES, unlike any other term, there should be no end-of-term examinations at the basic school level this academic year.
The GES stated that the reopening of schools for the 2021 academic year for students from kindergarten to junior high school (JHS) was for “recovery learning”.
Headteachers and teachers were however tasked to use class exercises and tests to assess students.
“Management further wishes to inform all District Directors and School Heads that the existing arrangement for stationery use at the District Offices, which is to be deducted from the schools’ capitation grant allocation remains in force,” the circular issued by Deputy Director-General Dr. Kwabena Bempah Tandoh said.
