Ghana Education Service Warns Against Improper Registration Of BECE Candidates

All Heads of Basic Schools (both public and private) have been warned by the Ghana Education Service (GES) management not to register JHS 1 and JHS 2 students for the Basic Education Examination Certificate (BECE).

According to Mr. Prince C. Agyemang-Duah, AG. Director, Schools and Instructions Divisions, it is illegal for Heads of Schools to register BECE candidates who have not been approved. Also, it was noted that only pupils enrolled in Junior High School Form Three (JHS 3) may register as candidates for the BECE.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) and Ghana Education Service (GES) rules and regulations prohibit registering JHS1 and JHS2 children in their own schools or in other schools to take the BECE, hence any Heads of Basic Schools who do so would be labeled for doing so.

One more time, it is UNLAWFUL for any Head of Public Basic School to register JHS3 pupils from another School (Public or Private) to Write the BECE.

The Head of Schools were also informed about the registration audit by GES. After the registration process, “there will be an audit of the BECE registered candidates,” they declared. Any student whose registration is discovered to have been made in violation will have it NULLIFIED by WAEC, and the responsible Headmaster will face severe repercussions as a deterrence.

DATE FOR BECE REGISTRATION GES emphasized the importance of carefully adhering to the WAEC-set registration deadline in order to prevent late registration.

To ensure a smooth BECE registration, GES has given Regional Directors of Education the job of passing along the information to Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education. They are to advise all Heads of Basic Schools to take note and abide by the aforementioned directions.
