New Entrants in Senior One A total of 307,434 new entrants to senior one were registered in the year 2011 constituting 26% of the total student enrolment at secondary. Despite the official entry age to senior one being 13 years, 2% students were under age. The number of girls entering senior one surpassed the number of boys by 2%. Further analysis indicates that the big number of students who entered senior were between fourteen (14yrs) and fifteen (15yrs). There were also cases of over age students (i.e students who range between 17 years and 19 years) and these constitute 12% of the new entrants, see Table 5.6 for details.

This is an indication of poor performance, wastage of resources and can result into congestion/competition for sitting and writing space by those who have been promoted .

The disaggregation by grade shows that there are more repeaters in senior four (S.4) and senior six (S.6), which are candidate classes. 5.4.2 Repetition by Region and Gender in Secondary Schools Data on repeaters was collected also at regional level and disaggregated by school ownership in order to make comparisons and to ascertain the region with more repetition rates. Table 5.8 gives the number of repeaters by region and school ownership.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
