The 29th edition of the BECE starts this morning across the country with over 500,000 candidates taking the examination. BECE candidates seek for apor all night long instead of candidates doing their last preparation and having enough rest ahead of the paper.
This exams has evolved in many ways with various changes over the last 29 years.
From the onset, 12 subjects were written until it was changed to just 10 subjects then to 9 subjects. Several subjects have been integrated and the contents either reduced or eliminated altogether to make it less stressful for students at the JHS to learn. For instance, Technical Skills and Drawing is now Pre tech skills whiles Science and Agricultural Science is now Integrated Science.
Today marks an important journey in the lives of candidates who seek to get the chance to gain admission into second cycle institutions in Ghana.
