The newly-amended certificates will be issued only after completion of all examinations pertaining to a particular year. The certificate will be issued at the end of the year, after all examinations have been completed, results released, and appeals heard.
For candidates who have been awarded Senior Certificate (amended) for a particular year but who want to improve their results by writing additional subjects, special arrangements will be made.
Candidates who do not apply for the opportunity to write additional subjects and improve their results will lose their place at any tertiary institution and may be required to repeat the whole year if they wish to continue with study at that institution.
The amended Senior Certificate is a great way for students to gain more knowledge about their skills and abilities. This certificate helps them plan their future careers, as well as improve their scores if they wish to continue studying in higher institutions of learning.
