FSLC Exams Starts Today

The Minister for Education, Heritage and Arts, Mahendra Reddy, sends well wishes to all Year 12 students as they sit their Fiji School Leaving Certificate examination today.
This year there are 12,484 students sitting for the FSLC exams in 166 centres around the country. The first paper today will be accounting.
“I wish to thank all the teachers, parents, guardians and stakeholders for the effort they have put in throughout the year in preparing the Year 12 students,” Mr Reddy said.
“There were challenges encountered but I am thankful to all stakeholders for their commitment and dedication to date. This is an important exam for these students as it will determine their entry into higher education and employment opportunities.
“I wish to encourage all Year 12 students to do their best as they begin their exams on Monday. I also wish to remind parents and guardians to provide full support to their children in this important time.”
The minister said children should be reminded that irrespective of their achievement in this exam, there were always opportunities to secure a better future for them.
“The Government has created various opportunities to ensure that students find a pathway that will lead to a better future after secondary education,” he said.
There are 1016 students in Ba Tavua District, 528 in the Eastern Division, 702 in Cakaudrove, 2285 in Lautoka, Nadi, Yasawa, 1384 in Macuata Bua, 617 in Nadroga Navosa, 349 in Ra, 2023 in Nausori and 3580 in Suva.
Uluivalili College, Vatuvonu Secondary Secondary School and South Taveuni Secondary School from the Northern Division are the three schools that will be presenting their candidates in this examination for the first time.
The last papers are Vosa Vaka-Viti, Hindi, Urdu and French on November 16.
“As part of our reform this year, we have also introduced external examinations at year 7, 9 and 11. The standard examinations will also commence on Monday the 2nd till the 13th of November for Year 11 whereas Year 7 and Year 9 will conclude earlier. These examinations are designed to measure student’s learning after subsequent numbers of years and to define important pathways for improvement,” Mr Reddy said.
“I am again wishing all our Year 12, Year 11, Year 9 and Year 7 students nationwide a rewarding and fruitful examination in the coming two weeks.” DEPTFO News
