The Papua New Guinea Government will be doing away with Grade 8 and 10 National Examination this year.
Deputy Prime Minister Leo Dion announced this when opening the 2016 Academic year in Rabaul recently.
He says as per the Education Minister’s instructions, grade 8 and 10 students around the country will no longer sit for the exams, starting this year.
Dion says the concept will boost the number of student enrollment at the secondary school level, by allowing students to continue into grade 12.
Mr. Dion says, the government wants more students to continue to grade twelve and eventually into tertiary institutions both locally and internationally as well.
