No fewer than 19,273 failed the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN) Examinations in the 2019 diet.


Of the 72,947 who took the examinations in various centres across the Country, according to the Registrar of the Prof. Segun Ajiboye who disclosed this on Sunday in a statement.

He said 53,674 Candidates passed the November diet of the Professional Qualification Examination organised by the Council to certify teachers in the Country.

The Registrar, expressed satisfaction at the Nigerian teachers’ commitment to excellence despite the challenges they face in line of duty.

According to him, Lagos State topped the list of those who registered for the examination with 8,224 candidates. Of this number, he said 6,067 passed the examination.

“This is followed by Oyo State with about 5,599 registered candidates where a total of 4,243 passed. The next is Kaduna where 3,769 passed out of 4,008 who registered for the examination.”

Ajiboye, who said the professional qualification examination was a continuous exercise, urged teachers who had not yet qualified to register for the next diet to escape being sanctioned.

“It is a continuous thing and the door is still open to those who have not registered to do so. And those who failed the examination still have opportunities of retaking the examination. The close of the deadline does not mean that PQE has stopped.
