Few students answered present in almost all centers despite measures put in place by Minister of Secondary Education Jean Ernest Massena Ngale Bibehe.
Equinoxe radio, a Popular Douala based radio reports that only 10 out of 31 students showed up for Computer Sciences in Government Bilingual High School, GBHS Tombel in the South West region, in GBHS Bayele in the North West region, only over 200 answered present out of over 1000 expected.
The GCE Board has said it is too early to advance figures but report on the ground indicates that there have been massive absences of students.
As a result of these absences, the GCE Board was even forced to combine the centers: for instance Equinoxe radio reports that students from Our Lady of Mount Camel in Muea, Buea were stranded when they only discovered on campus that their center had been moved to GBHS Muea.
In the South West region, 7 centers hosted 41 schools in Computer Sciences while 8 centers are hosting 48 schools in Food Sciences.
In Limbe only two schools, GBHS and GHS Limbe hosted several others.
No boarding school was used for the exams.
