Three of five external examinations will be taken out of Fiji’s education system by 2011 due largely to the increasing number of school drop outs.

The Fiji Intermediate Examination (FIE) will be abolished next year, the Fiji Eighth Year (FEYE) and Fiji Junior Certificate (FJC) examinations will be abolished by 2011.
 
The Fiji Cabinet approved the abolition of these exams this week.
These examinations will be substituted by school-based and external continuous assessment aligned to global trends and best practices.
 
Minister for Education, National Heritage, Culture and Arts, Youth and Sports Filipe Bole said the eternal examination, which have been part of Fiji’s education system since the colonial days, have various negative implications.
 
“An important negative effect of examinations is that they contribute, in a big way, to school dropout,” he said.
 
Bole said the abolition of the three examinations would allow students a minimum of 12 years of basic education before they sit an external examination.
 
“The new system should decrease the number of annual school dropouts,” he said.

Bole said that once implemented, the first external examination a student in Fiji will sit will be in their sixth form year.
 
He said the Form 6 and 7 examinations have been maintained because of the important function they play in the selection of students for further education and employment opportunities.
