No fewer than 3,963 teachers who sat for the Nov. 2023 diet of the Professional Qualifying Examination (PQE) failed the examinations.
Prof. Josiah Ajiboye, the Registrar of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), the body that conducted the examination, disclosed this at an interactive session with newsmen in Abuja on Monday.
Ajiboye said the examination was conducted to test the professional knowledge of teachers in the educational sector.
“A total of 15,753 teachers sat for the examination at 38 centres across the country.
“Out of this, we have 10,636 that passed, which is about 72.9 percent, and those that failed are 3,963,’’ he said.
Ajiboye also said that other candidates were absent at the examination while others had their results cancelled due to examination malpractices.
Ajiboye assured that the council would continue to work towards the improvement of the teaching profession in Nigeria.
