Form Six exams start tomorrow with 11.46 pc candidate rise

THE number of Form Six candidates to sit for Advance Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (ACSEE) starting tomorrow across the country has increased from 95, 955 registered last year to 106,955, an increase of 11.46 per cent.

National Examinations Council of Tanzania (NECTA) Executive Secretary Dr Said Ally Mohamed told the reporters in Dar es Salaam on Sunday that a total of 96,914 candidates are school, while 10,041 are private sitters.

He added that out of the school candidates, 53,324 are boys and 43,590 are girls, estimated as 55 per cent and 45 per cent respectively.

Dr Mohamed further said: “Out of the number in school, some 181 candidates are with special needs, 114 have low vision, 14 blind, 28 with physical impairment and one with intellectual impairment.”

Elaborating, he noted that in the private candidates’ number, some 6,248 are boys (estimated as 62 per cent) and 3, 793 (equivalent to 38 pe cent) are girls adding that they will sit for the exams in 257 centres that have been prepared for them.

In comparison to last year, Form Six candidates who sat for the examination were 85,531 registered as school candidates and 10,424 being the private ones.

The increase in the number of candidates to sit for the Form Six exams comes as part of the government’s efforts to provide Secondary education to all as well as the construction of more secondary schools across the country.

During the implementation of Five-Year Development Plan II, the government increased the number of secondary schools’ classrooms from 115,665 in 2015 to 136,292 in 2020.

Also, the number of secondary schools increased from 4,708 in 2015 to 5,402 in 2020.

Recently President Samia Suluhu Hassan assured that not a single student will miss an opportunity to join Secondary School due to the lack of classrooms.

She said the government has managed to construct a total of 8,000 fully furnished classrooms for secondary schools countrywide.

In her twitter account, she said: “This historic achievement will bring relief for at least 400,000 students.

In less than two years of President Samia in office, the government has surpassed the target of constructing classrooms for secondary schools by 198 per cent.

Going by the Third National Five- Year Development Plan (FYDP-III) being implemented between 2021/22 and 2025/26, the government planned to construct 4,040 classrooms for secondary schools across the country.

But, last year alone it built 8,000 new classrooms which are already in use this year.

In a related development, Dr Mohamed said that some 8,906 candidates will be doing teachers’ examinations at certificate and diploma levels.

He added: “Teachers’ examinations are also crucial because through them we get teachers to teach in primary schools. Equally, Form Six exams are very important because through these we test knowledge and skills that the students have acquired ahead of joining higher learning institutions.”

Meanwhile, NECTA has reinstated 337 students, whose Form Four 2022 National Examination results were nullified, adding that they will repeat the exams during the same period, when Form Six examinations are ongoing as from tomorrow.

On the other hand, Dr Mohamed said that logistics including transport for the examinations to all regions have been completed.

“All the preparations for the Form Six and teachers’ examination for the year 2023 have been completed including the distribution of relevant exams, answer booklets and all-important documents related to these exams to all regions and councils in the country,” he pointed out.

The NECTA further directed all examination committees to ensure security is maintained in all centres as per guidelines given to the council. The council also instructed the invigilators to abide by ethics as it calls upon the candidates to observe ethics and truthfulness.
