Kwara State Government has disclosed the cutoffs for the ongoing teachers’ recruitment exercise at the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and the Teaching Service Commission (TESCOM).
Atotal of 40,652 applicants sat the recent examination for the two categories.
The cutoff for SUBEB is 50% for Kwara indigenes from across the 16 local government areas except (applicants from) Baruten, Edu, Kaiama, and Patigi whose pass mark is pegged at 40%. The cutoff for non-Kwarans in the SUBEB category is 60%.
Similarly, Kwara applicants who scored 50% in the TESCOM category are to proceed to the results verification stage, but candidates who posted 40% from Baruten, Edu, Kaiama, and Patigi in the category will also have their results screened for interview. The cutoff for non-Kwara applicants for TESCOM is 65%.
“These cutoffs are a product of thorough deliberations by various education stakeholders, predicated on the number of applicants, their performances in the CBT (examination), as well as considerations for disadvantaged areas of the state without necessarily jettisoning acceptable degree of competence,” the statement said.
Out of the 40,652 that sat the examination across the 16 CBT centres, only 9,991 applicants hit the cutoffs and have therefore qualified for results verification stage of the exercise for the two categories.
The figures include 5,116 (SUBEB applicants) and 4,875 (TESCOM applicants) respectively.
Only applicants whose certificates are found to be genuine in the verification exercise will be invited for the interview stage which begins on March 15, 2021, the statement stated.
Candidates for the interview will be required to bring original and photocopies of their certificates
