Here is the latest update on the illegalities of BECE registration of students for the examination.
REGISTRATION OF UNQUALIFIED STUDENTS (JHS1 AND JH52 STUDENTS) – BECE REGISTRATION
The Management of the Ghana Education Service wishes to remind all Heads of
Basic Schools (both public and private) that registration of JHS1 and JHS2 for the
BECE is ILLEGAL.
Registration of candidates for the BECE is strictly for students in Junior High School Form Three (JHS3) only.
It is against the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the West African Examinations Council’s (WAEC) Rules and Regulations to register JHS1 and JHS2 students either in their own schools or in different schools to write the BECE.
Also, it is ILLEGAL for any Head of public basic school to register JHS3 students from
another school (public or private) to write the BECE.
