Kick off of the 2017 GCE writings in the NWR
The Governor accompanied by the Deputy Registrar of the GCE Board visited some exams centres.
The 2017 session of the General Certificate of Education, GCE examination kicked off today in some few accommodation centres in the North-West Region with 40% of the students who registered for the Ordinary Level sitting the exams while 45% of students answered present on day one of the GCE exams for the Advanced level.
Some of the accommodation centres like Government Bilingual High School Bamenda, Government Technical High School Bamenda and Government Bilingual High School Down Town Bamenda are hosting about eleven institutions each due to the current upheavals in the two anglophone regions of Cameroon.
The Governor of the North-West Region Adolphe LELE LAFRIQUE, accompanied by his Etat Major, the deputy registrar of the GCE Board, Mr NDASI MOFOR Denis and the SDO for Mezam, SONGA Pierre Rene, today visited some exam centres within the city of Bamenda where they kicked off hitch free.
The 2017 session of the GCE exams are taking place in a tensed atmosphere, thus the reason for the tight security in all the exam centres to keep the students and the officials safe. It is worth recalling that a 17 year-old girl in Bamenda was attacked and her right hand slashed on her way to take part in the Oral part of the bilingual exam last week.
Over one hundred and thirty thousands students are taking part in the 2017 session of GCE exams across the national territory.
