WAEC announces Marking of BECE  Script on Monday

The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) has revealed that the marking of scripts of this year's Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) will commence on Monday, October 9, 2023. This comes after 3 months of taking the final paper.

According to the Head of Public Affairs of WAEC, John Kapi, the examination board put in place a process that will bring together examiners to train themselves with the marking scheme. The process ends today, Friday, October 6, 2023, and by Monday, October 9, the actual marking will start," he told Daily Graphic.

He added that the marking process, including the second examination process, had financial challenges, which is why there are delays in year-making.

So we have started the process, but what we are saying is that if monies are not released, we may not be able to complete it.

Mr. Kapi also revealed that WAEC met with the Minister of Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, and he assured them he would release monies to the council that no one was on strike regarding the marking of the scripts.

Because the Government owes WAEC, it could be more apparent that the 2023 BECE for school and private candidates would occur.

However, the Government later released GH¢50.5 million to the WAEC to conduct the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and the BECE.

Out of the amount, GH¢40 million went into the successful conduct of the WASSCE, representing about 30 percent of the total amount needed to conduct the exam.

The Head of the National Office of WAEC, Wendy Addy-Lamptey, noted that GH¢10.5 million was for the conduct of a successful BECE, constituting almost 15 percent of what was required for the successful conduct of the examination.
