Teachers’ recruitment: Osun releases qualifying exams results, cut-off marks

Osun State Government has released the results of the qualifying examination for candidates seeking employment as teachers in its public schools.

This followed the conduct of a Computer-Based Test for over 27,000 applicants across designated centres in the State.

In a statement released on Monday by the Commissioner for Information and Civic Orientation, Mrs Funke Egbemode, after the week’s State’s Executive Council Meeting, the government reported that 11,068 candidates made the cut-off points for basic and post-basic primary schools respectively.
This also included 13 persons with specials needs.

The statement read in part, “Contrary to the faulty statistics that had been in circulation on the social media, the government has released the official result of the qualifying examination for teachers.

“A total of 5,216 candidates made the cut-off mark for post-basic schools, being 40% and above, while a total of 5,852 candidates made the cut-off mark for primary schools, being 35%.

“This brings the total qualified candidates to 11,068 after the first round of the recruitment exercise.

“Those who qualified after this round will proceed to the stage of proficiency interview and micro-teaching in areas of specialisation at a date that will be communicated soon.

“The government has shown generosity and understanding with its benchmark, but will not fail to uphold professionalism and merit in the recruitment process.

“Candidates who make the shortlist after the CBT screening are advised to upscale their preparation for subsequent rounds of interviews and give a good account of themselves to make the merit list.

“The teaching profession is a very crucial one that has a strong implication for the future of a society. Teachers are very important in building a society and securing the future of a nation.”
