Oyo State Government has announced that the computer-based test (CBT) for all candidates that applied for teaching appointments in the state will commence on Tuesday, August 11, 2020.
The Chairman, Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM), Pastor Akinade Alamu disclosed this on Thursday while answering questions on Fresh 105.9 FM programme, COVID-19 situation room.
Alamu had last week said that all applicants for the teaching appointment would have to upload their credentials on the website to allow for equal participation and open process.
The TESCOM boss said the examination will run throughout the week except on Sunday, reiterating that anyone who could not upload his or her credentials to TESCOM’s portal before Tuesday should not bother to write the test.
“The examination will be starting on Tuesday, 11th August, 2020 and will run all through the week till Saturday. They will be starting daily from 7am till 6pm and the results will be communicated to the applicants through the email they put in their registration and through SMS.
“No applicant’s complaints will be attended to at the CBT centers, if anybody has complaints, let them come to the TESCOM office, we wish them the best in the examination.”
Alamu hailed the Makinde-led administration’s resolve to conduct computer-based examination for all candidates applying for teaching appointments in the state.
According to him, the move has portrayed the government as being open in all its governance processes.
Speaking on the issue of private school owners demanding a quarter of school fees for third term from students who were at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Alamu said the private school owners ought to have consulted with parents and other stakeholders before deciding on such.
He asked the private school owners concerned to see the effects of COVID-19 as something which affected them and the parents as well, urging them to desist from charging the students without appreciating the consequence of the current situation on the financial strength of individual home.
