He also added that completing his South Sudan Certificate of Secondary Education (SSCSE) is a milestone that has prepared him for success at the University of Juba.

Having completed SSCSE is an invincible milestone that has thoroughly prepared me to succeed at the University of Juba,” added Majur Malou

Students who hold a South Sudan Certificate of Secondary Education are invited to apply to a university of their choice between March 11, 2024, and March 25, 2024, according to the ministry’s public announcement.

A birth certificate, nationality certificate, two passport size photos, and six thousand South Sudanese Pounds (SSP 6,000) for picking up the admission form and guidebook are also required from every applicant.

The announcement mentions that applicants can collect admission forms and guidebooks in the following admission centres; University of Juba, Upper Nile University – Juba Campus, University of Bahr el Ghazal-Wau, University of Rumbek of Science & Technology-Rumbek, Dr. John Garang Memorial University of Science & Technology – Bor and Directorate of Admission – Ministries Complex.

Yier Christine expressed that high school is a journey with hardships and difficulties, which she has endured with her colleagues. “It was indeed a journey with hardship and difficulties, just like the other journeys of life, but my colleagues and I made it to this level today,” said Yier to Talk of Juba.

She also added that she does miss first lessons because of transportation, which has made her come to school lately. “One of my challenges was transport. It has actually made it so hard for me to get to class on time. I normally missed the first lessons, and that wasn’t a favourable situation at all.” She added

Admission forms duly filled with copies of required documents and photos attached to them are to be submitted to the admission centres mentioned above no later than March 25, 2024.
