The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) has said the conduct of BECE 2020 would be delayed until the global coronavirus pandemic has been brought under control.
Mr Opoku Amankwa in an interview monitored by shstrendz.com on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem morning show on Wednesday disclosed that amid the disease, the Service is unsure about how and when to organize the annual Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
According to him, the pandemic has put on hold a lot of activities they were to undertake ahead of the BECE, He added that he could not at the moment give a specific time frame within which the BECE will be conducted.
“For now, we can’t tell how we will organize the BECE if we give a date and by that time the virus has not gone we can’t go ahead and do it. And besides, there are so many things we first have to do before the BECE begins like educating the students on how to choose schools and all that, but we know we can’t because of the pandemic” he said.
