Kaolack, July 2 (APS) – The president of jury number 1506 of the new high school of Kaolack (center), Ahmed Ndiaye, recalled that candidates for the Baccalaureate are not authorized to bring their mobile phones to the examination centers, indicating that he only applied the measures issued by the educational authorities, regarding the dismissal of around sixty students for non-compliance with this ban.

“We have just applied the measure taken by the minister. Mobile phones are prohibited in examination centers,” reacted Mr. Ndiaye regarding the exclusion of 64 Baccalaureate candidates who had brought their mobile phones with them to this examination center located at the entrance to the commune of Kaolack.

Speaking about the follow-up to this matter, he emphasizes that it is up to the disciplinary committee of the Baccalaureate Office, organizer of this exam, “to see how the situation can be resolved.”

“For the moment, they will not be able to continue with the other tests, because I called the Baccalaureate Office which ordered the candidates to be sanctioned,” he insisted.

He noted that the decision to dismiss these candidates is in line with the “warnings” from the Ministry of National Education and the Ministry in charge of Higher Education, mentioned on the candidates’ summonses, regarding “the ban on carrying telephones or any other technological supports in the examination centers”.
