    The standard of education in Nigeria keeps dropping by the day, especially in government school. And the most unfortunate fact is that the Govt. seems helpless because the system is corrupt. Those paid to fight mal-practise are now the brain behind the same monster that they are to fight and kill.

    The Government shld do something about this, because the private schools are doing better than the public schools, if the mass failure is too much then they have to do something about the Jamb seated students.

    The simple truth is that the issue of ‘O’ level examination will now be business between West Africa and the National Examination Council; because both need more candidates to re-register. So why won’t there be a mass failure of candidates? The truth and only the truth must be said. Think about it.

    Secondary school students especially in govt & unchecked private schools should take their studies serious. Learn how to write exam on their own b/cos mass cheating leads to mass failure. What do we do to those officials that abate examination malpractice? We must tackle them otherwise O’level’ll continue to loose its standard in Nigeria. CORRUPTION!!!

    This issue of mass failure is one that should not be taken lightly. It is obvious that this problem is overwhelming because it is widespread over many West African countries. As with any problem if we don’t address it from the root, it will fester and continue to spread. As a people we need to move past blaming the testing system. We need to address the problem from the student’s point of view. The bottom line is the children are not grasping the concepts because of the way it is taught in schools.
