Why is the TRCN qualifying exam past questions and answers so important?

Here is why… bassed on my mum’s experience

It is a requirement that teachers in Nigeria write the Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria Professional Qualifying Examination (TRCN exams). In 2019, the federal government made the exam compulsory and any teacher who does not pass the examination would not be allowed to teach.

This new policy made a lot of the teachers step up on the hunt for the TRCN past questions. My mum was one of those that were desperately in need of the TRCN professional qualifying examination past papers. In February 2019, she left her role as the head of the Administrative Department in one of the federal parastatals and was transferred to a federal school. In her new place of work, she did not want to be an Administrative Officer, she felt she would make more impact as a teacher which was a great idea considering she has a degree in Education with her degree in Sociology. Even though many of her colleagues could not understand why she wanted to teach, they respected her decision but did not fail to tell her about the new policy and how she should start studying the TRCN past questions and answers.

I was thinking this would scare my mum because if she did not pass the professional examination, she would not be allowed to teach and after almost 25 years working as an Administrative Officer, this was her first real shot at teaching. Her colleagues shared my thoughts too, but she was determined. She was so determined that she was on the hunt for resources that will help her get prepared and her google search history was where can I find past questions on TRCN exams, where to download the TRCN past questions pdf, etc She finally discovered EduPadi and proceeded to download the application which allowed her study extensively for it.

When the exam date was almost near, my mother was confident that she had studied enough. While her colleagues were busy looking for TRCN past questions free download on Google, she was revising. She told them about the resource she used to study, but they did not take her seriously because they believed she was new to the system and most of them had written the exams twice and even thrice without passing it. They felt they have been in the system long enough to know what works and she is new in the teaching career, she cannot know the TRCN exam syllabus more than they know it.

My mum wrote the exams and passed in flying colours in her first trial. Unfortunately, most of her colleagues had to rewrite the exam.
