Nigeria Junior Secondary School English & Maths Exam Papers In 1946 by farem: 7:33am On Apr 30
These were exam questions in1946 for 'Middle IV' which is the equivalent of JS2 now, I believe. I wonder how many of our graduates now could pass these exams easily. No wonder our secondary school leavers of the past could think deeper and ask questions better than many people that carry themselves around today as graduates. Sad.

I am of the opinion that we need to restructure our educational system by strengthening free primary and secondary education. We need to have more technical schools to encourage the trades. As for tertiary education for our youth, we need to develop a realistic, reliable and sustainable funding model that will ensure independence of the university system and also quality delivery therefrom. For now, we seem to be obsessed with building our universities on large expanse of lands with buildings all over the place but fail to equip and supply laboratories therein.

I think we need to restructure our educational system to aim at bringing out people at all levels that can create jobs. Not just job-seekers.

We are too quick to judge and downplay our generation when we see things from the past.

To start with, in those days, majority of the people who attended schools then were the brilliant and average ones in the society. The dull ones weren’t seen in school. Unlike this our generation when every child is expected in school.
Many JSS 2 students nowadays, a class equivalent to the middle V can also attempt these questions perfectly.

Education has deteriorated, but this generation is not so worse as you have said

When the mad dealers (leaders¿) are busy thinking of the money to steal and who to kill, you are talking about improving education. When a man without a school cert is the President and a professor of law is his deputy, tell me why education will be given priority.

When I first joined Nairaland, I thought that 'Lalasticlala' was a special slang on the forum. In the same way, a new child born in Nigeria grows up to think that stealing and wickedness are the right values while education is rubbish.

A harmless question was asked and you can provide any answer but this epistle.
Go ask them ; many of their junior ones are still being helped by contracted home teachers when they are still idle, doing nothing. It boils down to the fact that, they can't really/successfully prepare their junior ones for common JS 3 (Junior WAEC)

How many application letters have I received from them? The worst comes when you ask them to write it in your presence- It is not about speaking English. That doesn't require a bit of education to come by

Let us be sincere here bro, if the schools in those days could have this same percentage of students we have now, would they have the pass percentage they did have then?

Education has deteriorated today, but we don’t have to put the blame on our present generation students and exalt the older ones.
There are lazy students in this generation as there were lazy students in earlier generation also. The difference is just that the lazy ones in the earlier generation won’t even be allowed to attend school unlike this ours where the lazy ones will be forced to attend school

There were no lazy pupils that time because, with time, they would be frustrated with repeats. Unlike today that the dullest are never thought of failing ordinary classroom work. This is rampart in private schools.
The rot, started showing some 30 years ago but now it's above 95 percent in the private schools.

There was no lazy students cos they were not allowed to attend school by their parents. Even if you are brilliant, you may not be privileged to attend school.

Nowadays, basic education is a necessity (primary and junior secondary). Unlike then. And the idea of basic education is to be literate (ie, knowing how to read and write).

The question are fair for an average student who have been thought those topics.

Truth be told that the value of education is reducing over time here in Nigeria. The rise of mushroom schools and churning out of half baked graduates is the cause. Government needs to declare a state of emergency in the educational sector.

With the current moral decadence, it is unclear to assume this generation is dumb or smarter. What we all know at the moment is, there are lots of inventions and advancement in human history especially in Africa and Nigeria in general like never before. There goes your answer

The standard of education now is actually higher. Let me limit my understanding to primary and secondary education that I only had opportunity of acquiring.

For you to see it differently,you will need to go through primary and secondary books of today and the volume of works schools give students weekly. You may find most of them not to be good in current affairs or read outside their school books,but their standard is way higher.

I remember Daily Times newspaper used to have an editorial "This day in history" it was about republishing same day editorial they printed decades ago. I read one printed in the 1930s,it was this complain falling standard of education. That falling standard complained in the 30s produced China Achebe, Wole Soyinka and multitudes of international award winning professionals
