While maintaining that the mock examinations will start with practical papers from Wednesday, September14 to Friday, September16, the theory aspect will commence on Monday, September 19, 2016.

The Permanent Secretary urged the students to attend the extra coaching and be punctual as attendance will be strictly monitored.

He added that this was the only way they could appreciate the commitments of the State public school teachers who brave all odds to embrace a better future for the children and encourage them to achieve more in the sector.
