SISC Underway in Country

The Form Five Solomon Islands Secondary Certificate (SISC) entrance examinations are currently underway in the country.

The Solomon Islands Secondary Certificate is an exam that determines whether Form Five students are eligible for Form Six (Year 12).

The exam includes core subjects like, Math, English, Science and Social Science and optional subjects such as Home Economics, Woodwork, New Testament Studies and Business.

Solomon Times spoke to a form five student of Mbua Valley School, Junior Kori who said that he was very excited to have completed the core subjects.

According to Junior Kori the Math paper was a bit tricky "but I am confident that I will do well and I am not worried about failing."

He told Solomon Times that the key to get through to Form Six was study, "which was something I did everyday since the beginning of the year," he added.

Kori also revealed that although all students are studying very hard for the SISC, "we have heard rumors that the papers were already leaked to other schools before the exam," he told Solomon Times.

He said that many students had disagreements when they heard the rumors of the papers being leaked and if it were true it would be very unfair to those who had been studying very hard.

"Despite the rumors we will all work hard to finish all our exams and not let the rumour make us feel down hearted. Everyone found the first exams tricky, however as we continued throughout the week, we became more confident," concludes Junior Kori.

The Solomon Islands School Certificate will end this week.
