Grade 12 students nationwide have sat for their written expression exams today.
Like other secondary schools nationwide, 300 (157 males and 143 females) students from Kilakila Secondary School in the nation’s capital sat for their Grade 12 National Written Expression examinations with the supervision of internal invigilators and 3 external invigilators.
Kilakila Secondary School Deputy Principal for Student Services Philemon Geidilo stated that preparations for their Written Expression examinations did not go as expected with students struggling with their writing skills.
“The students prepared well in the two mock exams that they had prior to today’s written expression exams but they still faced issues with their English writing,” said Mr Geidilo.
“They seem to write a lot of shorthand text-messaging style words that some of them do not know the actual spelling of the full words in formal English.”
Mr Geidilo stressed that these is expected in the results from today’s exams since many students were already exposed to technology, especially mobile phones they use every day.
