THE Education Ministry says all students who passed Year 12 (Form 6) should be allowed into Year 13 (Form 7) this year irrespective of their marks.

An Information Ministry statement stated Education Minister Filipe Bole said this would mean scrapping of all regulations and policies regarding entry into Year 13.

Mr Bole made the announcement in his monthly meeting with his senior staff members yesterday.

"As of today, all students who pass the Fiji School Leaving Certificate Examination are to be allowed to get into Form 7, all regulations and policies about entering Form 7 are to be scrapped," Mr Bole said.

"The decision behind the announcement is to allow students to freely continue their secondary education. We have continued to open Form 7 education in all parts of the country for the last four years in our quest to bring education to our communities so we need to allow all those students who pass their Form 6 examinations to enter Form 7 irrespective of the marks they attained."

The ministry had also issued a stern warning to all school principals and managements to take heed of the announcement and not turn away students because they did not attain the 250 or 230 marks which are usually the entry marks into Year 13.

There are 158 Year 13 centres in the country.

The newest Year 13 centres opened in 2013 are at Rotuma High School, Nabala Secondary School, Ratu Luke Memorial and Kalabu Secondary School.
