Education sets new dates for postponed Year 12-13 exams

Postponed year 12 and year 13 external exams will be held next week, Fiji’s Education Ministry permanent secretary Anjeela Jokhan confirmed today.

Exams that were supposed to be held on the afternoon of Wednesday 16 December and both sessions on Thursday 17 December will now be held on Tuesday 22 December and Wednesday 23 December.

For year 12, the new dates are for those studying computer, physics and vernacular and for the year 13 stream, applied technology, office technology and agriculture.

The ministry will publish the new timetable on their facebook page and website tomorrow. All students will be required to sit their exams at their designated schools.

Those students who are unable to sit their exams will be awarded marks based on their performance throughout the year.

“Those students don’t sit exams will be awarded marks based on their performance throughout the year in line with the ministry’s external exams assessment policy,” Jokhan said.

All exam-related enquiries should be directed to Yogesh Krishna on 891-3149 or via Timoci Bure on 890-9614.

“With disruptions in transportation, particularly from Vanua Levu and the Maritime Islands, delays are anticipated in the arrival of exam papers which students have already sat.

“Therefore we are expecting some delays in the release of results for the National Examinations this year. Our markers have completed the first batch of marking and are currently marking the second batch. They are on standby to receive and mark papers as they arrive.”
