Abstract:

The objective of the study was to assess learners' effort to prepare themselves for grade 10 mother tongue (Wolaytato) national exams. The participants of the study were teachers, students, school directors, parents and wereda education experts. Questionnaire, interview and focus group discussion were used as tools to collect the data. Qualitative and quantitative data analysis method were used to conclude that data. Thus, the study approved that students relatively tried to prepare themselves for the national exam by studying in group and pair. However, students did not strive from their bottom of heart to score better result. According to the research findings, students still have irrelevant attention towards mother tongue education and this is one of the factors that affected their result in grade-10 Mother tongue (Wolaytato) national exam. Accordingly, it was recommended that the students should give due attention to Mother Tongue (Wolaytato) so as to achieve better result in grade-10 national exam. Wereda Education offices in collaboration with Wolayta Zone education department should carefully follow that grade-10 mother tongue (Wolaytato) national exam is administered according to Mother tongue (Wolaytato) curriculum, textbook and curriculum.
