Mbacké, May 23 (APS) – The department of Mbacké (center) will present this year 9,195 candidates, including 5,938 girls, for the examination of the Certificate of End of Elementary Studies (CFEE), revealed the inspector of the education and training (IEF), Ndiaga Ba.

The number of candidates represents 64% of the total number of students expected in all examination centers, Mr. Ba said.

“Compared to last year’s number, there are 9,195 candidates, including 5,938 girls, or 64% of the total number having to take the CFEE,” he said.

Compared to last year, the number of candidates increased by almost 500 students at the departmental level.

The 9,195 candidates will be distributed across 41 centers, two more than in the previous edition of the CFEE exam.

Thirteen centers are located in the commune of Mbacké, twenty-three in Ndame, three in Kaël and two in Taïf.

For the Certificate of End of Middle Studies (BFEM) for which the written tests will begin on July 18, “the Mbacké department has 5,316 candidates, including 3,518 girls representing 66% of the workforce,” said the IEF.

They will compose in 23 centers distributed as follows: thirteen in Mbacké, eight in Ndame and two in Taïf.

The Mbacké department has a number of 3,930 Baccalaureate candidates, for whom eight examination centers will be open, he informed. “This large number,” he said, shows that parents are increasingly aware of the need to send their children to school.

“The growth of private schools has also increased the statistics, especially in the commune of Touba Mosquée where more than 100 private schools are authorized,” he noted. The private sector is playing “an extremely important role in schooling at the department level”, he insisted.

He said he was reassured by the arrangements made with the prefect of the Mbacké department for the delivery of the tests and their security to the examination centers.

He welcomed the support of municipal mayors who often take care of the transport, accommodation and catering for members of commissions sitting in rural areas during these examinations.
