Abstract:This paper describes the origins of the adaptation question during the early decades of the 20th century; it also examines the various reactions of the people and institutions connected with secondary school education in Nigeria to the suggestion that education be adapted to suit local needs; and lastly it discusses the result of the effort to adapt education in Nigeria which culminated in the introduction of an Overseas School Certificate Examination for Nigerian candidates in 1936. The article shows that the English Universities Examining Boards failed to initiate programmes of adaptation in Nigerian education. Notes, table.
