GOF Group of Schools is resolute in her quest to exposing her students to the required and all-round knowledge that would not only make them complete students but also equip and prepare them to becoming potential champions nationally and internationally. In achieving this, a well-designed curriculum is strictly adhered to and religiously followed by all participants – teachers and students alike.
GOF International Colleges’ curriculum is broadly divided into the Junior Secondary School (JSS) and the Senior Secondary School (SSS). The JSS is a three-year course comprising JS1, JS2 and JS3 where students are expected to be taken through a series of schemes of work. Students are, as well, subjected to both formative and summative tests throughout the three-year course. (The same applies to the Senior Secondary School)
Composition of Overall Marks
GOF believes both in the formative and summative evaluation of students. In view of this, the overall / total marks a student can score in each of the subjects are grouped into two viz: Continuous Assessment (CA) and Examination. The continuous Assessment is 30% while the Examination is 70%.
The Continuous Assessment is an aggregation of all class activities such as tests, note grading, class work, projects and take home assignments.
At GOF Group of schools, we employ different assessment methods to evaluate our students with a view to ascertaining whether or not the objectives set out in the curriculum are met or achieved.
These methods include:
- Short answer questions
- Multiple choice questions
- Structured Data / Response questions etc..
After admission into GOF International Schools, all students are expected to, from time to time, write series of internal exams from JS1 through JS3. Successive good performances by students in these series of internal exams eventually lead them to writing the final examinations at the Junior Secondary School level. These final exams include Junior School Certificate Examination (JSCE), Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and other equivalent exams.
Similarly, students at the senior secondary school level are subjected to writing series of internal examinations at periodic intervals, from SS1 through SS3. They are presented for final exams such as the Senior School Certificate Examination (SSCE), May/June and October/November. These final exams are conducted by WAEC and NECO.
a school, there is an adopted grading system that is used to encourage, stimulate and fine-tune students’ culture towards learning. The level of qualification ranges from A* to E as shown below:.
|90 – 100||A*|
|75 – 89||A|
|70 – 74||B2|
|65 – 69||B3|
|50 – 64||C|
|45 – 49||D|
|40 – 44||E|
Note: 0 – 39 is graded ‘F’ but is derecognized as far as GOF International Schools are concerned.
Participation is compulsory for all students in games and sporting activities. This involves: Football, Basketball, Table-Tennis, Volleyball, Athletics, Calisthenics, etc.
This makes students develop physically, socially, psychologically, emotionally and mentally.
