I expect the Ministry of secondary education to raise the English language standard for those who want to take on teaching as a profession. The poor communication skills of our teachers, makes it difficult for students to understand concepts that they try to explain. Introducing MCQ'S will complicate matters, because many students resulted in memorising theories, and reproducing them without understanding what they mean. With the increase in the number of graduates from our universitities, and the increasingly fewer jobs, the government can increase the standards of secondary school teaching, by introducing a Bachelor's degree as the minimum requirement to teach in our secondary schools. The A-level standard and entry into ENS Bambili should be proscribed. Lots of my teachers from ENS Bambili were a disaster. If the standard to become policemen and commissioners have been raised, it is time for our educational standards to be raised. Teachers who can't communicate effectively, should not be allowed to graduate from training colleges. Effective reading skills is the key here. I wonder how and why some of these ENS graduates found themselves in the classroom. In our primary schools, many teachers did not pass Ordinary level math, and English and are expected to teach primary school Arithmetic and English, which should form the core in preparation for secondary school education. Though i may not show the statistics here, many of these teachers in primary schools have 3, sometimes four ordinary level, without English and Math. By making a pass in English and Math compulsory in order to teach in our secondary schools, will not only force our students to be interested in these subjects, but will significant get pupils prepared for secondary school, and hence stand up to the MCQ challenge.

hi i am a student in GBHSyde.i have long heard about the introduction of the MCQs by the GCE board.According to what i was told,if u fail 1 question,1 mark will be deducted from ur marks.meaning that if out of 20 questions,u fail 10 then u have zero.so i am very worried that many students can fail because of that.
