02 Jan Event: the 2019 IFOMSSA Challenge – February 2019
The 2019 (3rd edition) of the IFOMSSA Challenge has been scheduled for a date in early February, 2019.
The exact date, venue and time will be announced in due course.
This exam is for the selection of winners for the 2019 Senior “Ifedioramma Okafor Memorial Secondary School Academic Awards” (Senior IFOMMSA Awards).
It is a one-day examination , organised by the OCI Foundation in conjunction with the Otuocha Zone of the Anambra State Post Primary Schools Service Commission, PPSSC (who are in charge of the educational activities in Anambra East Local Government Area of Nigeria).
About 35 students, drawn from all 10 State Government-owned secondary schools in the Local Government, will sit for the exam. Between 10 and 15 will win the award, which will cover the entire registration fees for their 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the National Examination Commission (NECO) Examinations.
For the first time, winners from this year’s (2019) senior awards will also have their Joint Admissions and Matriculations Board (JAMB) Examination registration fees automatically covered, once they indicate interest in proceeding with this exam.
From 2020, the IFOMSSA Senior Awards will include all the schools from the Otuocha Educational Zone (Anambra East, Anambra West, and Ayamelum Local Government Areas), and not just Anambra East LGA as is currently the case. In fact, this year (2019) a limited number of students from the other 2 LGAs will participate in the IFOMSSA Challenge, and would be eligible for the IFOMSSA Senior Awards.
