About JSS2 Civic Education Scheme of Work

In Nigeria, Civic Education in Junior Secondary School 2 (JSS2) helps in shaping the understanding of students about their rights, responsibilities, and active participation in their community and nation. 

At this level, students study the concepts of citizenship, governance structures, human rights, the rule of law, democracy, and societal values. The unified scheme of work aims to instil in students a sense of civic duty, ethical behaviour, and critical thinking essential for their role as responsible citizens. 

Through Civic education, JSS2 students in Nigeria are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to actively engage in civic life, contribute positively to society, and uphold democratic principles.

Assessment Guide

In junior secondary schools, how students are assessed in Civic education can differ from school to school. However, typically, they are evaluated through tests or 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 45% or 40%.
