The Ghana Education Service (GES) has announced that this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) will commence on Monday, November 15, 2021.
The examinations, which will end on Friday, November 19, will be held at 2,158 centres, with a total of 571,894 candidates across the country.
In a statement signed by the Public Relations Officer for the Service, Cassandra Twum Ampofo, she urged the candidates to eschew all forms of examination malpractices during the period.
“Candidates, invigilators, supervisors, school authorities, teachers and parents are advised to desist from any form of examination malpractice.”
“GES, WAEC and the security services are working jointly to ensure the smooth conduct of the examinations at all the centres across the country,” she added.
To prevent the spread of the coronavirus, invigilators and supervisors have been directed to ensure strict adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols at all the centres.
Meanwhile, “parents, candidates and the general public are informed that the school selection process will commence after the BECE.”
Details of the selection process, the GES says, will be communicated in due time.
Unlike previous years, where the national exercise was held in May/June, the 2020 and 2021 editions had to be postponed due to disruption of the previous academic calendar by the COVID-19 pandemic.
