The practical part of the 2017 June session of the General Certificate of Education, GCE, begins this Monday May 15, 2017 in all Centers across the country with students who did not register, admitted into the hall.
The decision to allow those who have not registered for the GCE this year to be allowed into the hall was taken by Secondary Education Minister Jean Ernest Massena Ngale Bibehe while touring the two English speaking regions. New Centers have been created and those who did not register will be separated from the registered students.
Tight Security has been previewed for Monday in all the centers. This assurance was made by the Minster of Secondary Education to parents in the two regions.
This year, over 129 000 students have registered for the exams according to figures from the Board, 54 000 less than last year’s figures.
There have been security threats circulating on social media with a group of people who call themselves the ‘black vipers’ threatening to deal with whoever dares to go out to take part in this year’s GCE. The Government has assured parents that nothing will happen to their children.
Several candidates who fled the troubled North West and South West regions will be writing in other towns like Douala, Bafoussam and Yaoundé.
