Exam preparation classes were organized and held for all CRC students taking the National Primary School Examination (NPSE), and the Basic Education Certificate Exam in mid-April. NPSE classes were held on April 10th and 11th, and BECE classes on April 12th and 13th. These important exams are ‘gate-keeper exams;’ students are required to pass them in order to be promoted to Junior Secondary School (for those taking the NPSE), or to Senior Secondary School (for those taking the BECE).
Offered with the support and assistance of Allen and Patty Morell, these classes were led by tutors Lawrence Johnny, Edward Brewa, and Vandi Sitta. This was the first time that the CRC has offered exam preparation courses separately to NPSE and BECE students, who have always been combined in the past, and it worked very well. NPSE students took their exam on the first Friday in May, and the BECE exam will happen some time in June.
