About JSS2 Agricultural Science Scheme of Work

Security Education forms a crucial part of the syllabus for students in Junior Secondary School 2 (JSS2). This subject is designed to provide students with the necessary knowledge and abilities to comprehend various aspects of security, safety, and personal protection within their communities and beyond. 

The scheme of work covers topics like crime prevention and emergency management. Through both theoretical teachings and practical activities, students gain insights into potential risks and strategies for risk reduction, nurturing a sense of accountability toward their safety and that of others. 

Security Education in JSS2 helps to shape students into informed and proactive citizens, ready to contribute to the security and well-being of their communities.

Assessment Guide

In junior secondary schools, how students are assessed in Security Education can differ from school to school. However, typically, they are evaluated through tests or oral quizzes (Continuous Assessment Tests) and end-of-term exams.

Grading usually follows a scale from A to F, with A representing excellent performance, typically scoring around 70% or 80%, and F indicating failure, usually below 40%
