Students await sitting of PEP Tuesday


Thousands of primary school children are anxiously awaiting tomorrow’s first sitting of the Primary Exit Profile, PEP.

The ability test for Grade 6 students will be administered at 1,104 centers across the country. A little over 40,000 students have been confirmed to sit the school leaving test.

There has been some apprehension in recent months about the exam and the readiness of students.

The Ministry has said all is in place for the first sitting with packages dispatched to the regions as well as training of invigilators and examiners completed.
