After being postponed following the insecurity that plagues these two regions of the DRC, the tests of State examinations for 2018-2019 school year, began this Monday, August 12 precisely in the educational provinces of Nord Kivu 2 and Sud Ubangui 2.
For the province of Nord Kivu, this postponement is justified by the growing insecurity and the spread of the Ebola virus disease.
"Today we had a good examination. The city is calm and we can even see it in our school. We did not notice a safe presence. But before going to the rooms, we have to wash our hands with buckets with taps placed at each entrance, "said Sephora Mboli, a student at Mwandu High School in Beni City, joined by the digitalcongo.net editorial.
For the Sud Ubangi province, this ordinary session of the State Examination was postponed following conflicts between the localities of Bokoma and Botulu.
"All the necessary measures are taken to ensure that these events take place in good conditions" announced Saturday, August 10 by the Minister of primary, secondary and vocational education, Emery Okundji.
These tests will take place during 4 days, from Monday 12 to Thursday, August 15, 2019 in these two provinces. A total of 5990 finalists are registered by the National Organizing Center of the State Examination for 16 centers selected on average of 375 candidates.
