b.e.c.e registration fee 2019, the government will absorb the registration fees of 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in public junior high schools.
The registration fee is GHc 75 per candidate in both private and government schools.
This was contained in a memo sighted by Citi News, from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to the Metropolitan, Municipal, District and Directors of Education.
The registration for the candidates is scheduled to take place from November 13 to December 15, 2018.
Students resitting are to register as private candidates.
WAEC warned the directors of education in the memo that it will “nullify entries of private schools that select school types wrongly and thereby do not pay fees.”
This marks the Akufo-Addo government’s latest intervention in public education after the implementation of the Free Senior High School policy which started in with the 2018/2019 academic year SHS entrants.
The BECE is required for both the certification and selection into Senior High Schools and Technical Institutions.
