At least 7,000 Somali students sat for their final school examination for the first time in 25 years on Monday as the Horn of Africa nation seeks to revive its education system.

According to Acting Premier, Abdullahi Jama, the country was making steady progress in reforming its education system.

“It is a great day for us taking centralized examination from our secondary schools today. This is the progress our country is making now. I wish you success in the exam,” Ahmed told the candidates in Mogadishu before the examination started."

Similarly, Internal Security Minister, Abdirisak Mohamed, told newsmen that security forces had been deployed to fortify security and thwart any terror threats where the examinations are taking place.

This is the first centralised examination which the Federal Government conducted for students who completed secondary schools in Somalia since 1991.
