Should I leave Secondary school and start attending a lecture/tutorial centre to Pass Waec and Neco or I should just keep attending Secondary School? This is a question that bothers every SS2 Student who wishes to sit for WAEC or NECO.
The simple answer is, “it is better to attend good lecture centres because your secondary school won’t really prepare you for Waec and NECO SS2.
Deciding whether to leave secondary school and start attending a lecture or tutorial centre to prepare for the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and National Examinations Council (NECO) or to stay put and continue secondary education is a common dilemma among SS2 students in Nigeria. This decision is a pivotal one, as it has the potential to significantly influence their academic trajectory and future opportunities.
Many students, driven by the desire to succeed in these crucial exams, are faced with the question, “Should I abandon my secondary school for a specialised tutorial centre?” The response to this is not black and white; it depends largely on the quality of education offered in each setting.
However, it is important to note that the decision should be tailored to the individual student’s learning style, pace, and comprehension ability.
An argument can be made for choosing a reputable tutorial centre over a conventional secondary school. The fundamental reason is that these centres typically offer an intensive, focused approach to preparing for the WAEC and NECO. They are designed to provide a tailored curriculum that specifically targets the requirements of these exams, making it easier for students to grasp key concepts and principles.
Tutorial centres usually adopt a targeted approach, focusing extensively on past questions and likely examination scenarios. This allows students to practice and familiarize themselves with the types of questions they’ll likely encounter in the WAEC and NECO examinations.
Moreover, these centres often boast experienced tutors who have a deep understanding of the examination boards and their marking schemes, which can be a great asset in exam preparation.
However, lecture centres will teach you everything you need to know from SS1 to SS3 within a very short period of time. This is the advantage of patronising a very good tutorial centre.
You are only set for WAEC and NECO when you have gone through SS1 to SS3 topics. For schools that end in SS2, You would have covered all Waec syllabus and hot topics by then.
It is true that lecturer centres would help you prepare more for waec and neco. However, there is something else you should do; attend the two if possible.
Recommended: Why you should take waec from ss1
If you are already in a good secondary school and your parents are against you leaving, you can attend both secondary school and tutorial centres around.
You may be wondering, how do I then register Waec and Neco if I leave my current school? You can register waec and neco in any school or centre. You don’t need to be a student before you are allowed to enrol.
A good lecture centre will prepare you better for waec and neco than your secondary school if you choose to take when from SS1. This is because your secondary school doesn’t prepare you fully for either exam at SS1.
Despite that, I highly recommend that you attend both your Secondary school classes and tutorial centres if possible. If school takes most of your time, you can attend lectures during weekends and buy books to prepare for your examination.
