14,000 students sit FJC exam

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

About 14,569 students from 162 centres will today sit the second last Fiji Junior Certificate Examination before its abolition in 2011.

The Ministry of Educa-tion yesterday extended its good wishes to all Form Four students and called on the nation to support students preparing for the examination.

"Through our prayers and words of encouragement, these students will confidently walk into the examination room with a determined mindset to pass their examination," said the ministry.

The FJC exams will end on November 12. The Fiji Seventh Form Examination will be from November 9 to 20 and the Fiji School Leaving Certificate is from November 17 to 30.

There will be no Fiji Intermediate Examination in 2010, with 2011 set as the year when the Fiji Eighth Year Examination and Fiji Junior Certificate Examinations will be abolished.

Fiji Principal Association president Brij Deo Swaroop encouraged students to be cool and calm before entering the exam room.

"We would like to wish all students sitting for the FJC exams all the best," he said.

"Normally, students get excited or nervous but we are confident they will do well. Some teachers have been working very hard to prepare their students well for the exams and we thank them and appreciate their efforts."
