A Deputy Minister for Education in charge of Pre-tertiary Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum says there is no cut-off point or pass mark required from candidates partaking 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

The 2020 edition of the BECE for School Candidates which commenced on Monday, September 14, 2020, is currently ongoing at the 2,007 centres with 531,705 prospective candidates sitting for the final examination.

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) responsible for the conduct of the examination has scheduled for the 30th edition of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to end on Friday, September 18.

Dr Adutwum speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV monitored by Georgeweb.org said the central government introduced the cut-off point in previous years due to insufficient space in various second-cycle schools.

Asked if the Education Ministry lowered the qualification bar for entry into Senior High Schools (SHSs) in the previous years, Dr Yaw Adutwum said: “there was never a qualification other than what was called cut-off, and the cut-off was based on space availability, but for now, there is no pass mark”

The Teaching Minister furthered that the previous cut-off point did not mean a candidate has failed but rather it was about insufficient space in the about public 721 Senior High Schools (SHSs) across the country.

“The previous cut-off point situation wasn’t so much about you have failed, it was about there is no space for you”.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Bosomtwe Constituency said the implementation of the double-track system has now made it possible for a candidate to get enrolled into any of the second-cycle schools in the country.
