These are the cream of secondary school education in Salone. Not true at all. In those days Ahmadiyya was top especially when Okama and MP Bayoh were heading the school management. It was renowned for discipline and good results. How can you all forget? @fake Head Boy Bra lef mi Handle Go fen yu yone ...Real Head Boy go POW forms 1-5 en St Edwards Form 6 Ya! .I don't know about yu yone school but I remain proud for di facts say POW and St Edwards have NEVER been accused or INVOLVED in paper leaks or "fake GCE Ya!

Over time, school performance and perceived ranking is bound to change due to competition, available resources, quality of students taken in, etc.
I hear there have been lots of new schools over the past few decades, many of which are private. How are these new schools doing compared to the old established ones?
The matter of exam leakages is not just limited to Salone. It is widespread in Nigeria. The universities there recognized this. Many students entering with distinctions simply could not perform. So a screening exam was developed under JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board). There was a direct correlation between student performance in the JAMB matriculation exam and subsequent performance in university. We need something similar to the JAMB exam.
