First term school exams axed

The Ministry of Education has decided not to conduct first term examinations in all government schools from next year onwards.

In a press release, the ministry said the decision was taken to give prominence to events such as inter- house competitions, educational tours, exhibitions and cricket tournaments to encourage unity and team building.

However, this decision will not impact this year's first term examinations, as preparations have already been made to hold the exams.
