Overview of Cameroon GCE Board, Examinations and Results
The Cameroon General Certificate of Education Board known as Cameroon GCE Board, is the public examination board responsible for setting examinations, marking them, and distributing results for Anglo-Saxon Cameroonian secondary school students at two stages; Stage 1: The GCE Ordinary Level (“O Level”), a subject-based qualification conferred as part of the General Certificate of Education, for students having completed a 5-year secondary education program, with students qualifying to sit the GCE O’ Level examinations; and Stage 2: The GCE Advanced Level (“A Level”), another subject-based qualification conferred as part of the General Certificate of Education, as well as a school leaving qualification offered by the educational bodies and authorities to students completing secondary or pre-university education, for students having completed a 2-year High School education program, and who have previously sat and been successful in at least 4 GCE O’ Level subjects. GCE A’ Level examinations are written by upper sixth students.
In the 2015/16 academy year, about 182,416 candidates sat for both the GCE examinations in Cameroon with over 138,000 candidates for the O’ Level and 46,000 for the A’ Level examinations.
It was founded in 1993, and the current Registrar is Monono Ekema Humprey, who took up the position in 2006.
Brief History of Cameroon GCE BOARD
The Cameroon GCE board was officially created in 1993, according to a book titled “The Cameroon GCE Crisis: A Test of Anglophone Solidarity.” The book says the creation of the board was spearheaded by Anglophone community groups, such as the Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (TAC), lead by Mr. Peter Chateh; churches; Confederation of Anglophone Parents’ Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (CAPTAC), with other trade union groups also playing a pivot role in the creation of the board.
It took 10 years, from 1983 to October 1993 for a consensus to be reached by the aforementioned groups and the Government of Cameroon to create an examination board to award certificate to Anglophone Cameroonian students.
Before the Cameroon GCE board came to existence in 1993, certificates were awarded to Anglophone Cameroonian student by the General Certificate of Education in the UK as it was a Trust Territory under British administration (known as British Cameroons) from 1922 to 1961.
Cameroon GCE Results 2018 Slips was confronted by many complications.
Firstly the result was released earlier than usually expected. Normally the GCE results are always released within the range of 28th July to 5th August as it is known. But surprisingly this academic year the results were released on the 22nd of July taking everyone by surprise. Apart from the surprise, the first copies of the results published over the internet were either incomplete or a result of the past year, leaving students family and friends in total confusion.
Finally, the actual result was published from which every student saw his/her result. The results were quite good though as normal some students have to fail.
This result was digested with different feelings as the students had to accept their result which is the product of their effort.
The Issuing Of The Result Slips Increased The Confusion
More confusion came up at the time of collecting the results slips by students. It was noted that some students who failed on the result published have now succeeded in the exam as per what the result slips present. Some students even score higher than the maximum papers both at the ordinary and advanced levels. Yet after this incident, the result was happily welcome by the students since it was at their advantage student wise.
What is causing the greatest confusion is the communicate just published by the Cameroon GCE Board.
The Communicate reads;
All students who wrote the 2017/2018 GCE are called upon to contact their various schools under which they wrote with their results slips to collect the new ones. The former are not more valid, new ones have been made available.
NB; You have up till Friday the 21st of September 2018 to do so else you run the risk of never having a certificate.
Considering the fact that the academic year already kicked off more than two weeks ago. And also that these students have already look for admission into the next class, I can’t imagine the amount of damage this will cause both financially and psychologically.
Guidelines To Prepare For Success In Cameroon GCE Examinations Ordinary Level; What to do.
Trust me when I say GCE O-Levels are really simple to ace. I got straight As for O-Levels and it wasn’t much of a challenge, to be honest.
What you have to do is as follows:
- Study 3 subjects a day. I bet you’ll remember stuff better. Content is a breeze.
- Have a timetable and stick to it.
- Never study on your bed or anywhere near it.
- Listen to classical music once in a while. Just make sure there are no lyrics whatsoever.
- When you are trying to memorize, read through once, read and take notes by hand the following time, and lastly close your book and try to write what you just learned.
- Another great way to score is to memorize answering techniques.
- Use diagrams to help understand better
- Never refer to the answer sheet until you’ve completed the entire paper.
- Just before the exam, read through the notes once.
