students in Tigray will be the major beneficiaries since they dont have to go through the 10th grade hurdle like the rest of the country.

Somebody help me here, Is this exam significantly different from ESLCE that we took back in the old days? May be the civic part added?

Jartuu the moron
How is Tigray going to benefit by failing students from other parts of the country?
You are showing your way of thinking inadvertly. We don’t think like that. And i hope more people don’t. Hasn’t EPRDF help build so many colleges all over the country?
You think you will fare better if your neighbour is doing bad?
Mnkegna, menze!

to Binor
to answer binor’s question, the exam that was used to given in the previous 5 years were quite different than ESLCE. ESLCE (moreover for natural science students) did not include subjects like calculus, vectors and logics. however, under the new exam, not only these subjects will be included, but also they will be drafted in a way that students can have enough glimse of these subjects so that they will have knowledge of these subjects at universities standard.

Is it true Tigrai has a different school system? If it is true, how did it happen.

Yes. Tigray has a different schooling system. These people are the most racist people ever.

Knowledge is power and Tigray is very very determined in this direction.

Sexy topic worth further discussion. As the saying goes, the devil lies in the detail. There shouldn’t be any discrimination in education. From what I know before, the abyssinian used to benefit access to higher education for centuries primarily by local languages (non ethnic ge’ez, Amharic & Tigrigna) & examinors systematic manipulation(biased regionalism). They will be offered simple geez language exams accomanied by generous scaling so that they easily join universities. Typical case I know is I saw ESLCE result of one gay from Tigray with 3 A’s in Geez, Amharic and Tigrigna (other grades are C’s)and scored CGA of 3.6. If discrinatory local languages still have points in the qualifying exam system it really doesn’t make sense-especially for other ethnic groups. All Ethiopians need to reach consensus in this and other related issue. Also the examinors should be proved nuetral to all.

To Solomon,
I do not know where this idea of Tigray has a different schooling and ceritification came from. May be one of the out-there-to-sensationalize DC radios said aired this nonesense fabrication first and every blind hater is just repeating it like a parrot. The truth is there is not, there shall be not, there can be not such a thing. Federal government, in this case, Ministry of
Educaton administeres this policies and there is only one policy for all Ethiopia. How can people not ask critical question whenever they hear something that is not non-standard, unusual reports. If I hear any report or news that Tigray has a different policy, I would have asked questions like:
1-Where is this information from? Can it be confirmed from reliable sources other than the ones that are dissminating it? What does the MoE website say about this? Is there any thing from the Tigray Education Beauro that verifies such a report? Can there be exceptional policy for just one region in today’s politics? Why? If it is good for Tigray why not for others? Why would the opposition parties have never said anything on this point?…Please be not such an ignorant.

MAY the mostly ADD-STUDENTS of TIGRAY need to take special class to catch-up with AMHARA, gurages, welayta and OROMOS, way of thinking “WHICH IS FOUNDED BASED ON HARD WORK RATHER THAN STEALING AND CORRUPTION” unfortunatley “LIKE MY GRANNY SAID, U CAN ONLY TAKE A HORSE TO WATER HOLE, but u can’t force him to drink”
