About 1,181 candidates are set to sit for the median private Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE)

The examinations will be held from February 16 to 20, 2015 at 11 centres in various regional capitals across the country.

The age for first-time candidates have been reduced from 18 to 16 years to enable more candidates write the exam.

Candidates can write any number of subjects, between one and nine, including English, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and French.

The registration fees for the re-sit candidates have been set at GHc77 for one subject, GHc87 for two subjects, and GHc96 for three subjects and GHc105 for four or more.

.The use of continuous assessment marks would not be applicable in this instance as candidates would be marked over 100.

Also, first-time candidates below 16 years and students in junior high schools (JHSs) will no be qualified to register for the examination.

The Head of Public Affairs of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), Mrs Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, says "all the necessary arrangements needed for the smooth take-off of the examination have been put in place" and  "all the rules and regulations pertaining to BECE for school candidates will apply."
