The 2020 edition of the Basic Education Certificate examination will begin today, Monday, September 14 to Friday, September 18 at all designated Examination Centres throughout the country.

According to the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), a total of 531,705 candidates are expected to sit for this year’s BECE in 2,007 examination centres across the country. 269,419 of the candidates are males while 262,286 are females. The five-day exercise is expected to be held in 2,007 examination centres across the country.

In a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer for the Service, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, she stressed that the exams will be held amidst strict adherence to all Covid-19 protocols.

While wishing the candidates well, GES also urged “all candidates and stakeholders to eschew all forms of examination malpractices during the period. “We wish to remind all candidates, invigilators, and supervisors to appreciate the fact that the basis of success in life is honesty and hard work,” part of the statement read.

The development follows a temporary halt in educational activities after the outbreak of the coronavirus in Ghana. Unlike previous years where the national exercise was conducted in June, this year’s exams together with the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) usually slated for May/June, were both postponed due to the pandemic.

The decision according to government officials and the various stakeholders was in support of measures put in place by member countries to prevent the spread of the pandemic.
