OVER 600,000 CANDIDATES WILL SIT FOR 2023 BASIC EDUCATION CERTIFICATE EXAMINATION

Starting on August 7, 2023, a total of over 600,000 students are set to commence the weeklong Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

These students consist of 300,323 males and 300,391 females, hailing from 18,993 schools across the country.

This year’s batch of candidates represents the final cohort undergoing the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), a system that has been in place for more than three decades.

In accordance with the revised curriculum introduced in 2019, a novel examination will be administered to the initial group of Junior High School learners in the year 2024.

By 2024, students will sit for their Junior High School departure examination, which will be aligned with the fresh Standard-based curriculum.

Consequently, 2024 will usher in the advent of a new BECE and a transformative period in evaluating students.

However, the Coalition of Concerned Teachers is demanding transparent guidance concerning the forthcoming Standard-based curriculum examination.

Adokwei Ayikwie Awule, the Director of Communications for the Coalition of Concerned Teachers, expressed, “We are in need of a clear roadmap for the Standard-based curriculum examination.”

In a statement dated August 3, the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) advised candidates slated to take the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination to refrain from engaging in cheating or any form of misconduct that could undermine their objectives and aspirations.
