The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has released the fee for the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) registration.

As you already know, the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) will be written in July. The registration for the exams has already begun. According to the West African Examination Council (WAEC), the 2024 BECE registration started on 11th March, 2024. The deadline for registration is 19th April, 2024.

The BECE for School Candidates is a school examination and is available to students in the third/final year of Junior High School only. It is therefore against the rules and regulations of the examination for schools to engage in the following activities;

Solicit for students and advertise the BECE in any form e.g. in the print, electronic or social media;
Register students who have not been enrolled in junior high school from their first year through to the third year and do not have the required continuous assessment records. The grading for the BECE is 70% external examination score and 30% continuous assessment score. Students who for one reason or the other transferred from one school to the other should have evidence of the necessary continuous assessment records;
Register students who are not in final year or are not bona fide students of the school in question. We have received intelligence reports of some students in public schools who move from their schools to private schools to register for the examination because of assurances of obtaining good grades by these schools.
WHAT IS THE 2024 BECE REGISTRATION FEE
The registration fee per candidate for the BECE stands at GH$214.01.

WILL SCHOOL AND PRIVATE CANDIDATES WRITE THE SAME SUBJECTS?
Notably, due to the implementation of the common core curriculum, there will be variations in the examination format for School and Private candidates. School candidates will be assessed based on the common core curriculum, whereas Private candidates will be evaluated using the old syllabus. As a result, Private candidates are urged to exercise caution when selecting their subjects.
