The Registrar of the Cameroon GCE Board, Dang Akuh Dominic, spoke after the release of this year’s General Certificate of Education results, indicating that the 2021 examination session was characterized by several innovations geared towards making the system more efficient.
He said no examination session resembles another due to the innovations introduced each time to address problems and challenges faced. The registrar disclosed on “Cameroon Calling” over the National Station, that the major innovation this year was the introduction of catchment centers in the practicals of examinations.
Dang Akuh Dominic further pointed out that “there are supervisors that have been handling question papers in the previous years but could not handle the papers this year, only GCE Board staff handled the papers this year” he said.
“That did not happen last year because it ended only with the written, this year we went to practicals and this year we introduced marking sessions in Limbe and in Buea, rotating the examiners and making sure that we increased the number of examiners so that the number of scripts that they are marking should not also increase” the registrar concluded.
The 2021 GCE results were released on Saturday, 21 August. A 59.08 percent success rate was recorded at the Ordinary Level, 69.94 at the Advanced Level, 58.81 percent for the Intermediate Level of the Technical and Vocational Education Examination and 71.59 percent at the Advanced Level of the Technical and Vocational Education Examination.
