90 Percent Of TESCOM Applicants Scored below Average in Oyo.

Chairman, Oyo State Teaching Service Commission, TESCOM, Pastor Akinade Alamu says only 10 percent of applicants who sat for the Computer Based Test, CBT to recruit secondary school teachers in the state scored above fifty percent.

Pastor Alamu who stated this on Monday while featuring on an Ibadan-based Radio station said the TESCOM board was disturbed with the poor performance of the applicants.

He also explained that the board would determine the cut off marks to be used which would be based on each subject, pointing out that the highest score in the test was 86 percent.

The TESCOM Chairman said the board would soon come up with the schedules of the interview for the successful applicants in the next one to two weeks so that employed teachers would resume for the new academic year which begins in September. 

He added that people with disabilities would also participate in the interview while 3 applicants gave birth at the screening centre for the CBT. 

It would be recalled that over seventy thousand applicants sat for the  examination held early this month, which its result was released last week.
