Rrtv Radio News of 3pm this afternoon announced that more than 80,000 students registered for the Cameroon GCE 2017, The offie of Bacc etc all over the national territory and that the exams shall be written on the dates as stipulated on the school year calendar.
The Minister of secondary keeps insisting on the valid certificate and no blank school year without talking about the quality of the education. Note should be taken that these statistics came as today was the deadline for the registration of these exams as extended by the GCE Board.
The same GCE board that threatened the non extension of registration giving Friday 30th of December 2016 as the latest. The new deadline met with 2 months of extension as can be seen from the message below hammered by the Registrar in November last
“Registration for June 2017 Examinations Organised by the Cameroon GCE Board will commence on Tuesday 8th November 2016 and end on Friday 30th December 2016. No late registration shall be allowed for the 2017 session. Candidates are advised to register before the dead line of December 30, 2016. The Examinations include:
1. GCE Ordinary Level General
2. GCE Advanced Level General
3. GCE Ordinary Level Technical
4. GCE Advanced Level Technical
5. Probatoire Technique
6. Probatoire de Brevet de Technicien
7. Brevet de Technicien
8. Baccalaureat Technique”
How then did they come to these figures when the deadline was today with the absence of internet in the Two regions?
To this effect and following the strike in the Anglophone zones, one begins to imagine how many students, studied this year to register and write the said exams.
