Bor County Pupils Sit For Mock Examination

Bor Public Primary School pupils wait for the start of the mock examinations. [Jacob Achiek Jok]According to the Bor Town Education Inspector Wany Thon Daniel, the mock testing was initiated to identify the candidates qualified to sit for the Jonglei State Primary Leaving Examination.

“We want to prepare them to have the right children at the right time, last year most of them jumped class seven to class eight and this will give a pressure to primary schools to trace out the pupils who jumped classes last year,” Wany Thon said.

He said screening is an education policy in every nation across the world where they identify those who move from classes to classes without sitting for the examination.

He said those who pass the mock examination are considered as fit to be candidates for the main examination.

“If anyone passes this exam, this is where we will license you to be a candidate of this year and anybody who passed this exam we are going to consider him as a candidate for year 2013,” Thon said.

Thon said for that they will consider those who manage to score higher than 250 marks.

There is a total of 556 candidates including 113 girls to be screened for the main examination.

Both private and government primary schools in Bor town are sitting for the mock examinations.
