To ensure hitch-free conduct of the year 2023 Placement Test by Continuous Assessment Scores (CAS) at designated Schools’ Centres, officials of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB), monitored the annual transition Examination for Primary Six Pupils of Public and Private Schools across the State.

The Board Secretary of LASUBEB, Mr. Hakeem Lamidi, who led the monitoring team, expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the exercise, stating that the examination is being held simultaneously in 405 centres across the State.

During the monitoring of some centres in Surulere LGA, he noted that the State is committed to ensuring that no child is left behind in accessing quality basic education, adding that every child in the transition class in Primary Schools is eligible to write the examination irrespective of their background and status.

He averred that questions are transmitted into Braille versions for applicants with visual impairment while support is provided to other physically challenged pupils, so as to cater to as many learners as possible.

Lamidi also commended the State Examination Board for the strategy applied in ensuring a seamless exercise, adding that the environment was made conducive for pupils to concentrate on their test.


The centres monitored include: Immaculate Heart Comprehensive Junior High School, Kosofe, New Era Junior and Senior Secondary School, Surulere, Pacelli School for the Blind and Partially Sighted Children, Lagos Progressive Junior Secondary School and Alapere Comprehensive Junior and Senior High School. Other Board members and Officers of the Board equally monitored the exercise across all 20 LGAs.
