Senior High School students who are either in penultimate or final year of high school education as at September 2014 as well as Sixth Form / A ‘Level Students.

From Monday, 13th to Thursday 16th April, 2015 (4 days).

Q4). Can schools with less than 6 students attend TAFMUN?
Yes. This can be discussed with our organization.
Q5). Can there be non-school groups at TAFMUN?
Yes. Such groups should be fresh high school leavers, who graduated within ten (10) months from conference date and thus not yet in a tertiary institution. They would however need to either identify with the school they just graduated from or be chaperoned by an adult who must be certified by TAFMUN organizer.
Another form of non-school group would be students from a cluster / collection of schools who will be sponsored by Government (Federal / State) or Corporate Organization(s).
