The Lagos State Examinations Board has commenced the registration for the Y2022 Entrance Examinations into Model Colleges and Upgraded Junior Secondary Schools.
A statement signed by the Director of the Board, Mr. Supo Gbadegesin, said payment for admission forms into the 16 Model Colleges by Primary Six Pupils transiting to Junior Secondary Schools had begun on Tuesday, 4th January, 2022 and will end on Friday, 8th April, 2022.
He also informed the Parents, Guardians, Head Teachers, Proprietors and Proprietresses of prospective candidates that the Screening Test would be conducted through Computer-Based Testing (CBT) only, stressing that only qualified pupils in both Public and Private Schools are to pay the sum of N10,000 each and late registration will attract an additional penalty of N5,000.
According to him, the registration of candidates will be done through the PIN, which will be issued by the Board, to enable the applicants log in and upload their bio-data on the portal.
While clarifying that the Screening Test is the only yardstick for admission into JSS1 in any of the Model Colleges, Gbadegeshin disclosed that only Primary Six pupils are eligible for the test and candidates that excel and meet the required cut off marks would be offered admission into any of the Model Colleges and Upgraded Junior Secondary Schools, irrespective of his or her first or second choice of schools.
The Director, therefore, advised eligible candidates to visit the Accounts Department of the Board for payment details.
“In line with the State Government’s Revenue Policy, payment should be made through the Central Billing System (CBS). A copy of the bank teller showing payment should also be returned to the same Accounts Department of the Board for validation of payment and issuance of an official receipt”, he said.
