With 29 examination centres, the North East Regional Directorate of the Ghana Education Service(GES) has registered a total of 9,206 candidates across the six districts of the region who will be sitting for the Basic  Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for the year 2024.

The regional GES public relations officer, Tongo Yidana told Asaase News that, “North East Regional Education Directorate registered 9,206 BECE candidates this year, comprising 4,636 males and 4,570 females.”

The BECE started nationwide on Monday (8 July) and is expected to end on Friday (12 July).

Yidana also urged pupils in his interview with Asaase News to write independently and not to involve any exam malpractices that may lead to withholding of their papers or cancellation.

“The only advice we have for the students is that we have asked them to be calm, they shouldn’t panic. The questions are based on what they have been doing at their various schools,” Yidana advised.

“We don’t want to have issues with exam malpractices and what of have you. So we have spoken to candidates, their parents, teachers and the invigilators to ensure that they give the candidates the conducive environment to write the exams independently,” Tongo Yidana stresses.
