Rwanda: Minister of Education Launches State Exams for Primary Schools

The Minister of Education, Gaspard Twagirayezu, has officially kicked off the state exams that mark the end of the 2023/2024 academic year for primary schools. He called on parents to assist in ensuring the smooth running of these exams.

The exams began G.S Gisozi I Primary School, in Gasabo District, serving 465 candidates, including 239 boys and 226 girls. A total of 202,999 students, comprising 91,189 boys and 111,810 girls, will be taking these exams at 1118 sites across the country, with the exams scheduled to conclude on July 10, 2024.

The exams cover five subjects: Mathematics, Kinyarwanda, English, Science and Technology (SET), and General Studies and Religion. They will be conducted over three days, with two tests on July 8, two tests on July 9, and one test on July 10.

Minister Twagirayezu expressed confidence in the preparedness of the students, highlighting that unlike previous years disrupted by Covid-19, this year students have had uninterrupted study time. He emphasized the importance of parental support in ensuring children are well-prepared and encouraged them to participate actively in their children’s education.

The Minister also addressed the issue of students with disabilities, assuring that necessary accommodations have been made to support their needs during the exams.

Various education officials, including the Secretary of State in MINEDUC, launched the exams in different provinces across the country. Last year’s exam results showed a higher success rate among girls compared to boys.

As the exams progress, Minister Twagirayezu urged students to remain calm and perform to the best of their abilities. He emphasized the collaborative effort needed from all stakeholders to ensure a successful examination process.
