Upper Nile State had been using the Sudan Certificate of Examination from Khartoum.
The briefing of candidates was done in various school centres where the students were advised on the examination criteria by head teachers.
They said no candidate will be allowed to leave the examination room before the stipulated time.
“The students were advised on the issues of malpractices during examination, they were told not to give or obtain unfair assistance whether by copying or any other way,” he said.
He added that if there is any evidence of wide spread irregularities among students, the whole results for the centre will be cancelled.
All the candidates should not come with the unregistered candidate to come and sit on behalf as they will be handled and treated as criminals.
The students were told not to share materials such as pen, rulers, mathematic sets and tables during the examination and so every student had to come with their materials ready.
The students were briefed on writing of names, school and index numbers correctly as used in the registry form.
Students were told to arrive 15 minutes earlier to the examination room and reminded that anybody who comes beyond the stipulated time will not be allowed to sit for the examination.
“Be in the examination room 30 minutes before the examination starting time,” said the head teacher of Good Shepherd Secondary School.
He said that there should be no communication whatsoever in whatever manner between candidates or with outsiders especially parents during the examination time.
Students were briefed on the use of mobile phones and programmable calculators not to be allowed to the examination or around the examination premises.
“If an examination paper for which you are not registered is handled to you, or if a question indicated that a map or other material should be given to you and you are not given any, inform the invigilators,” said the head teacher.
