Respected Ghanaian Educationist, Counsellor Daniel Fenyi, speaking on the Anopa Bosuo Show –Green FM says that the dynamics of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in five (5) years is not as compared to now.
“the point is that you do not answer any question or write any answer down on your BECE answer booklet, you have to be posted, the secondary Schools one have to been posted before”
According to him, JHS is not part of the basic education “for the good of us, I think BECE should not be conducted but rather when the student gets to FORM three (3), the Ghana Education Service(GES) should conduct something like end of term examination for the student.
Citing example, he said “…when a student id been promoted to JHS one, he or she is tested with promotional exams that is how our JHS should be, it is part and parcel of the basic system… so them it is to reduce their pressure to make them relax”
He said, to the educational policies concerning the SHS being the more important part of education.
“I support the SHS begin the great level in education unlike the JHS so if in 20 years to come and someone complete school or drop out, it should be SHS not JHS so that we will have such levels”.
He finally said that a lot of dynamics has changed in our education sector and also the way we conduct examination in the country. He therefore urged the whole educational structure to level up and met these kind of changes and dynamic which is coming up in the system.
