In view of the need to heighten academic performance of students in general and to equally stimulate their zest for core subjects such as Maths and English, the management of the school has introduced a sit back order/ resit policy. This simply implies that all students must score an average of 60% in Maths and English to escape relegation in our probationary module which in essence is a remedial arrangement. Therefore, this probational module is also specifically designed to identify areas where students demonstrate underperformance or academic weakness.
Having identified such areas of weakness, close attention is payed to these crop of students to ensure they build a sense of confidence in themselves and towards the subject question.
Suffice it to equally say that the student only exit the probationary module only after having demonstrated marked improvement in his/her area of academic weakness.
This remedial arrangement are of two sorts:
The short term module:- this occurs after every termly examination. Here, students with less than 60% in English and or Maths (or their CGPA in all subjects is less than 60%) are made to compulsorily resume a week earlier than the normal resumption date in order to prepare for and be coached in the subject in question. It is after this week long activity that the student is allowed to resit that subject with the hope that it serves as a corrective for the initial lack-lustre performance.
- The long term module:- this usually occurs after the 1st or 2nd CA Tests. In this case, students who record a –less-than-60% performance in Maths, English, Key Science Subjects or foreign language courses only are compulsorilly enrolled in the remedial programme for extra coaching sessions that occur twice or thrice a week. The affected students continue to attend this extra lessons until he or she shows significant amelioration on their academic performance.
The overall primary objective of this mechanism is to inculcate a spirit of academic discipline, an ever-ready disposition for hardwork and a strong drive to excel at all times. After all, scholars are made, not born.
