The National Union of Ghana Students, NUGS is calling on the government to consider three (3) proactive measures for Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates at Chereponi in the North East Region.
NUGS want the candidates to get equal opportunities to write their exams in peace as their colleagues in other parts of the country.
This year's (2019) Basic Certificate Examination is scheduled on June 10 -14 2019. BECE is the main examination to qualify students for admission into senior high and vocational schools in Ghana. It is written after three years of junior high school education. It is administered by the Ghana Education Service under the Ministry of Education.
Candidates in the third year of junior high schools approved by the Ghana Education Service are eligible for the examination. It is conducted annually in June.
In a press statement sighted by PrimeNewsGhana, NUGS indicated that due to the recent clashes between the two feuding factions, Konkombas and Chokosis at Chereponi in the North East Region, BECE candidates preparing for their exams are living in ''great panic and fear''.
