“On behalf of my Ministry, I wish to extend my best wishes to the 571, 894 candidates who will be writing this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination from Monday 15 November 2021 to Friday 19 November.

“I wish to encourage candidates, invigilators, supervisors, school authorities, and teachers to observe all COVID-19 safety protocols as you write the exams devoid of all forms of examination malpractices,” the statement read.

Below is the full post:

On behalf of my Ministry, I wish to extend my best wishes to the 571, 894 candidates who will be writing this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination from Monday 15th November 2021 to Friday 19th November.

Together with your parents and teachers, our dear nation has made great contributions over the past nine (9) years of your education, and now is the time for you to finish well and excel.

Thanks to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s commitment to prioritize education, all successful candidates who qualify for placement in any of our public senior high or technical and vocational schools will enjoy the Government’s Free Senior High School(SHS) or Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training(TVET).

I wish to encourage candidates, invigilators, supervisors, school authorities, and teachers to observe all COVID-19 safety protocols as you write the exams devoid of all forms of examination malpractices.

Let me assure you that my Ministry is working hand-in-hand with the Ghana Education Service, West African Examination Council, and the Security Services to ensure a smooth and peaceful examination at all the 2,158 designated centers across the country.

Once again, I wish you all the very best in your Basic Education Certificate Examinations.
