Can Student in SS1 or SS2 Write JAMB?

JAMB and most secondary schools discourages SS1 and SS2 students from writing UTME and O’level exams(Waec and Neco), but in my opinion I feel this should be reviewed again and students who are of age should be allowed to write these external exams.

I believe success come from experience, therefore getting familiar with O’level and JAMB standard questions early is good for an SS1 or SS2 student. Writing external exams such NECO, WAEC or JAMB UTME from SS1 or SS2 will surely get a student prepared for these exams at an early stage. Read more
