Musoma — ALMOST 97 per cent of pupils who have passed their 2012 standard Seven National Examinations have been selected to continue with secondary education in Mara Region.
Mara Regional Commissioner (RC) Mr John Tupa confirmed the reports to the 'Sunday News'. "Our students have done very well and 56.3 per cent of those who sat for the examinations have passed. Out of this 97 per cent have already been selected to join secondary education next January," RC Tupa said.
"All districts have sent to secondary schools all qualified pupils expected for Rorya and Musoma and our aim is to make sure that every eligible student is being admitted", he added.
He said Rorya and Musoma districts are working round the clock to complete construction of 36 classrooms in a bid to absorb the remaining three per cent as soon as possible.
"We have agreed that the classrooms will be ready in Rorya and Musoma ready for use by mid January", RC Tupa said. There are six districts in Mara. These are Tarime, Serengeti, Bunda, Musoma, Rorya and the newly inaugurated Butiama district.
