The President of the Organising Commission for University Access, Maximiliano Feru MeAe, spoke to guineaecuatorialpress.com on Tuesday 16th October, regarding the low performance of students who took the tests, and the poor results obtained.
Feru MeAe said that the results were very low, and compared those passing in June (22%) with those in September (14%).
In the Insular region, a total of 1,752 students registered, with 1,689 taking the exams, and only 220 passed, with the figure of those not passing of 1,469 (83.8%), and 63 who did not sit the exams(3.6%).
In the Continental Region, a total of 2,037 registered, with 1,999 taking the exams, and 339 passing. 1,660 failed (81.5%) , and 38 did not sit the exams (1.9%).
Facing these results, he praised some private educational centres, whose performances were very good, but pointed out that the overall performance for all centres had fallen.
In the continental region, centres such as La Salle of the Diocesanos Complex maintained a very good performance, The INES in Ebebiyin has gone down; Nse Abuy has remained the same, and in the Insular Region, the centres with the best results have always been Colegio Claret, Santa Teresita, Adventista and Buen Pastor.
Feru MeAe stated that mechanisms must be found to resolve the problem, because the overall performance of many students is very low. To do this, he urged young people to work more and make an effort.
