AMC/KSF Award Ceremony holds in different regions of the country.

The 2019 AMC/KSF Award ceremony took place in four different locations across Nigeria.

  • Grace International School, PortHarcourt, Rivers State.
  • Grundtvig International School, Anambra State.
  • The Ambassadors College, Ota, Ogun State.
  • Loyola Jesuit College, Abuja.

Principal Consultant for IAGIFTED, Professor Adewale Solarin said the idea behind the exam was to prepare Nigeria students to compete favorably with their peers all over the world.

“We have been coordinating AMC exams for nearly a decade now while Kangaroo Sans Frontiers joined three years ago. The exam is for all students in private and public from primary to secondary.

Interestingly, this is not conventional exam we give to our students in school. We go extra mile to make it a duty that our student’s should be able to compete favorably with other students all over the world. The idea is to challenge the student’s intellect and give them world view.

We are very happy with the turn out this year. The performance for last year wasn’t as good as this year. We have a lot of medals won by Nigeria students this year. Last year we had about 2,000 students that participated in the exam across the country but this year more than 4,000 participated.”

He called for more participation from government owned school, “the government is not doing enough in area of sensitizing and even training our teachers. Government needs to organize workshops periodically for teachers as it will impact performance of students.”
