He noted that the council specified that students come with their facemasks, wash hands in the school and have hand sanitizer and he was impressed with what Ihe has seen in the schools.
The Registrar further said that the Examination body is adopting prognostic monitoring where any infraction or non-compliance is addressed on the spot.

“This is a dry run to the SSCE because it is smaller in scope and size for SSCE. We expect that one or two million people will register for the SSCE but this one is a dry run and whatever challenges we experience now, we will find solutions to it with the bid of improving our performance during the SSCE, “ he said.
