Northern Bahr el Ghazal records improvement in secondary education results


July 5, 2012 (KUACJOK) - South Sudan’s State of Northern Bahr el Ghazal on Thursday released its 2011-2012 secondary education results, showing improved performances, compare to the previous year.

Authorities grounded improvement in performances in Sudan School Certificate examinations on recruitment of trained teachers from neigbouring countries of Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Congo and absorption of teachers who returned from Sudan from which the new nation seceded last year on July 9.

Although South Sudan has been an independent state for almost a year and self-governing since 2005, the world’s newest nation still uses the Sudan School Certificate as the entry level exam for its five public universities.

South Sudan’s ministry of general education says it has signed a three year memorandum of understanding with the Sudanese government in Khartoum to continue sharing using the Sudanese education system, while it develops its own capacity.

Literacy rates in South Sudan are extremely low with only around 3 out of every 10 people able to read and write. The situation is further complicated by English being solely adopted as the national language despite many South Sudanese speaking Arabic, the main language in Sudan, more fluently.

Stephen Chol Ajongo, a state Minister of Education, said in a statement that the pass rate rose to 68% from the 41% recorded in 2010-2011 results.

George Kuac Secondary School, a public school previously called Unity Secondary School, emerged with the best scores in the state with 79% passing. The second and third best schools were Saint Maria with 78% and Salva Kiir Secondary School with 74%.

      there no PTA in Aweil and specially whole south Sudan.
      there are brilliants childrens, evry bright child who can do well in his/her studies when he/s is gurade but who will do that? everybody is after money, girls and gentement. if you visit any school around here, you find girls and teachers only talking on how soon are they going to get married. that is the only question the normal asked.

        they only concentrated on stilling and prostitutes both.
        parents are not even bothering to ask theirs son/daus what was tought to them in school today. a good parent/gaurde ask his/her child what was tought to you in school today? did you learn new things today? which book are you given homwork today? did you do it? let me see?

    congratulations for those students that passed, and to those who didn’t there are always opportunities to pass next time. reminds me of my time. unfortunately, most of those who passed won’t go to university and won’t find jobs. still over 80% of people in south sudan can’t read and write.
