The Registrar of the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria TRCN, Professor Josiah Ajiboye, has said, 83.2% of the would-be teachers who sat for the 2018 (May Diet) professional qualifying examination in the 33 States of the Federation passed the examination.
The Registrar who stated this in his office in Abuja recently, said the examination which held from Thursday, 7th June and Saturday, 9th June, 2018, had a total number of 21, 882 candidates cleared for the examination while only 16, 611 candidates eventually sat for the examination across the various Computer Based Test Centres in the Federation.
According to the registrar, “the result of the 2018 May diet of the teachers’ professional qualifying examination was an indication that all hopes are not lost over the moves towards restoring the lost glory of education in Nigeria”
“This year, we have recorded a resounding success in the conduct of the examination in the 33 states and FCT with 42 centres as scheduled for the batch ‘A’ examination,” he added.
Ajiboye explained that the examination in Niger State was postponed due to some technical challenges and will be rescheduled to hold on Saturday, 30th of June, 2018.
The TRCN boss therefore called on candidates to check on the TRCN website; www.trcn.gov.ng or visit the TRCN State offices for their results from 29th June, 2018.
He further clarified that the list released by the Council contains only the names of candidates who were successful in the examination.
