1.0 OPENING REMARKS
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Welcome to the 2015/2016 South Sudan Certificate of Secondary Education (S.S.C.S.E), Examination release of results. Examinations result release is an important occasion for the Ministry of General Education and Instruction, given that the SSCSE examinations results will be used for selection into higher institutions including other key decisions to be made by MoGEI.
I therefore comment all members of staff of the National Examinations Council, who worked hard to ensure that this result is released on time. Thank you all for a job well done, despite the difficulties you faced during the marking and control processes.

The 2015/2016 Examinations were conducted between the 11th of April to 22nd of April 2016 and were administered at the examination centers without many hitches.

The 2015/2016 SSCSE Examinations were administered by approximately 2500 personnel, who included SSNEC’s Staff, staff from the state Ministries of General Education, county education staff, security and police, whom I commend for a job well done!
Further to this, the cooperation between the South Sudan National Examinations Council and the Ministry of National Security, CID, and Police Administrations went along way to ensure the security of examination materials as well as the security of candidates during the examination.

General Observations/Challenges in 2015 SSCSE Examinations
1. Late registration/submission of entries by states disorganizes Secretariat schedules.
2. Many errors in entries in terms of names, subjects and gender (some schools did not indicate gender).
3. Different registration forms (soft copies) used by different states. Both hard copies and soft copies should be picked from the Secretariat and passed to schools.
4. Impersonation – replacement of registered candidates by unregistered ones from the schools without the consent of the Secretariat.
5. Under Protest cases – allowing candidates to change their subjects during conduct of examinations hence sitting for unregistered subjects without the consent of the secretariat
6. Some schools give index numbers to candidates without the consent of the Secretariat
7. Casual selection of markers, invigilators & setters (Some are not practicing teachers while others were completely not teachers).
8. Delay in reporting of markers & setters due to flight schedule for different states makes it difficult to keep to our schedules.
9. Some schools stamped the question papers while some candidates write their names inside the question paper making control difficult.
10. Some candidates write their index numbers using mixed figures in English & Arabic making it difficult to identify their index numbers.
11. Some schools don’t include absentee forms in the scripts.
12. Some schools don’t arrange the scripts according to the index numbers.
13. Many schools don’t submit daily and general reports to the secretariat.
14. Some schools do not indicate the subjects on the returning envelopes.
15. Malpractice registered in some of the states.

Recommendations
a. Organize orientation workshops on registration & invigilation for State Directors of Examinations and Headteachers.
b. A routine one-day orientation for controllers & markers prior to their work to tune them to the task.
c. Sending National Scouts from the Secretariat and National Ministry of Education to monitor the conduct of examination in the different States to ensure compliance to Rules & Regulations on conduct of SSCSE examinations.
d. Develop “Rules & Regulations for conduct of Examinations” to regulate the conduct of examinations in the different States.
e. Develop “SSCSE Entry Requirements” to specify eligibility of candidates.
f. A routine (yearly) briefing of examination field officers (Chief Invigilators, Invigilators, Police etc) by the states officials and candidates by the Head Teachers & Teachers prior to start of examinations to ensure compliance to Rules & Regulations on conduct of SSCSE examinations.
g. Introduction of “Late Registration Fees” to regulate registration.
h. Compilation of list of recommended teachers based on our experience with them in the different stages and asking states to release them for us.

NB:
i. If the above-mentioned challenges are addressed, reliability, validity and fairness of the next examinations will improve.
ii. It is therefore the responsibility of all SSCSE examinations stakeholders to actively play their parts for the success of the next examinations.

I wish to inform all candidates and schools that offered the 2015/2016 SSCSE examinations that the results will be accessible through the following:
• Candidates can collect their official results from examination centers
• Candidates can also collect their results from state MoGEI’s offices.
• NB: Candidates should report any anomaly (such as incorrect candidate’s name, school name and code as well as wrong subject % to South Sudan National Examinations Secretariat within a month of the results’ announcement.
Thank you.
Hon.Deng Deng Hoc Yai,
Minister and Chairperson of National Examinations Council
Ministry of General Education and Instruction (MoGEI), RSS/Juba.
