The Minister of State in Charge of Primary and Secondary Education in the Ministry of Education, Gaspard Twagirayezu has said that there have been enough preparations for national exams at different levels and expressed optimism for better performance than last year when the country was undergoing difficult times occasioned by COVID-19.

Twagirayezu delivered the message as he officiated the beginning of national exams for candidates from ordinary level, upper secondary school, Teachers Training Colleges (TTCs) and Vocational Training Schools (TVETs).

The ceremony took place at Groupe Scolaire Shyorongi in Rulindo District. It was attended by different officials including the Director of General of the National Examination and School Inspection Authority (NESA), Dr. Bernard Bahati and the Mayor of Rulindo District, Judith Mukanyirigira among others.

GS Shyorongi serves as an examination center for different schools including GS Gisiza and École Stella Matutina. Candidates sitting for exams at the school include 157 girls and 59 boys.

The exams follow others for primary school finalists which began a week ago. The Ministry of Education says that the just concluded exams ended successfully with the participation of almost all registered candidates.

Twagirayezu has advised candidates against cheating because preparations of exams involved a transparent process with the participation of different parties including teachers and NESA.

“You have spent three years of studies and preparations for these exams. Besides, your teachers participated in preparations of these exams. Avoid panic, read questions and answer to them attentively. We wish you the best of luck,” said

A total of 429,151 students registered for national exams this year.

These include 229,859 candidates from primary school ; 127,469 from ordinary level ; 47,579 from the upper secondary school ; 21,338 from TVET schools while 2,906 are from TTCs.
