Ordinary and Advanced level candidates around the country are set to begin their examinations tomorrow.
A survey around several schools around Kigali City indicated that candidates are ready to take on the national exams.
Enock Mwine, a Senior Six candidate at Lycee De Kigali (LDK), told The New Times that he was ready for the papers.
“I prepared enough and I am just waiting for the exams to begin. I revised and I have been having discussions with classmates as well as doing personal research in the past few weeks,” said Mwine.
His schoolmate, Erwin Ihirwe, believes that he will excel in the exams because he has prepared enough asserting that his school has also done all it can to prepare them.
In an interview, the headmaster of LDK, Martin Masabo, said the school had done all it could to help prepare the students.
“We had enough teachers throughout the year and students were taken through many exercises to make sure that they sit for exams when they are ready,” he said.
The same mood was visible at Kagarama Secondary School and King David Academy.
Unlike in the previous years, Technical and Vocational Training schools will sit for examinations set by the Workforce Development Authority WDA.
According the Kicukiro District Inspector of Schools, Mathias Sekigera, due to lack of enough preparation time, some centres will accommodate both secondary and technical examinations.
“Time was not enough for us to be able to do everything we were supposed to do, but we hope that next year, the issue will be solved,” said Sekigera.
WDA is charged with regulating, promoting and guiding the implementation of TVET system, which covers vocational schools, technical schools and polytechnics two years ago.
