Over 131 thousand candidates, including more than 123 thousand students of grade nine and over 8 thousand self-directed learners of grade ten who had failed last year, did the national test, 2017 session, says the Minister of Education, Janvière Ndirahisha.

Over 82 thousand pupils of grade nine achieved the average score required to be admitted to the post-basic school with the success rate of 66.6%. For self-directed learners of grade ten, over 5 thousand passed with success rate of 67%.
Students who have passed the national test with an average score of 127/200 -grade nine ones and 189/345- self-directed learners from grade ten, will be allowed to attend public high schools with a boarding system.

Minister Ndirahisha calls the students who have failed the national test to request an access to repeat the class. She asks schools’ headmasters to grant places to those students in transparency. “Those who do not want to repeat the year will be allowed into trade schools,” said Minister of Education.

She said 263 schools got a 100% success rate, 49 schools had a success rate of less than 20%, while 9 schools had a 0% success rate. She requested the managers of these nine schools to close them. She said she will decide what to do with the schools that have achieved a success rate of less than 20%. “The headmasters of schools that have had a success rate of less than 30% will be dismissed from their position,” Minister Ndirahisha said.

On 17 May, the Minister of Education issued a ministerial ordinance that all headmasters of public schools whose results are less than 30% in the 2016 and 2017 national tests will be dismissed from their duties in the next school year 2017-2018.
