The Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is a nation-wide exam administered by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) that all junior high school (JHS) students have to take as a prerequisite for admission into senior high schools (SHS) in Ghana. Though the BECE is also offered in Nigeria, we shall limit ourselves to Ghana in this article.
It is based on syllabi provided by the Ghana Education Service (GES) and tests the breadth of a student's knowledge in a number of subjects including the Mathematics, English Language, Integrated Science, and Social Studies. These four subjects form the core which are included in all students' scores. The others are Ghanaian Language, French, Basic Design and Technology (BDT), Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and Religious and Moral Education (RME).
Students are graded out of 100 points on each subject and are given a raw score (out of 600) which comprises their scores in the four core courses plus the two best scores from the other subjects. This raw score is used to place them in a senior high school (SHS). Because the syllabi on which the examination is based is fairly stable and has not seen major changes for most of the subjects, studying previous exams is an important way of preparing for the BECE. Hence, we have made some past questions and answers available.
