The minister of Education Abdullahi Godah Barre has today released the results of the National Examinations results for secondary schools of 2018-2019 with 6,935 candidates failed to attain the required minimum grade.
There has been anxiety as candidates and parents wait for the release of the Form four examination results.
29,434 secondary school students in Somalia have done for their national examinations this year.
The centralized examinations have taken place for the fourth consecutive year, in Banadir region, Jubaland, Southwest, Galmudug and Hirshabelle states.
The government is working towards streamlining the education system and centralising exams to avoid students carrying different certificates.
However, umbrellas have been reluctant to let go of their function to administer exams noting it had been filling the gap for over the last two decades.
Umbrellas are still fully in charge of private schools exams in the whole country.
