The so-called candidates for the General Certificate Education (GCE) are still waiting for their results and this is causing general panic among families that betrayed the Southern Cameroons struggle to sit in for the exams. La Republique du Cameroun has launched many public entrance examinations into the public service and children from West Cameroon were unable to take part because the GCE results have still not been released.
Some of the directors of the professional colleges like Jean Marie Dongo of the National Post, Telecommunications and Information Technologies have announced that Southern Cameroons students can still sit for the entrance examination while awaiting the results.
Correspondingly, pressure is set to be mounting on the Board Registrar, Humphrey Ekema Monono who recently affirmed that the issues are very complicated than it was anticipated. Dr. Monono told CRTV that “Candidates registered in Bamenda in the Northwest Region and took the exams but in Yaoundé because of the Anglophone crisis. The GCE board must take this into account.”
However, Cameroon Concord News sources at the GCE board reported that the results in Southern Cameroons were catastrophic and there are talks about how to lower the scores and the grading. The GCE was indeed a complete fiasco as candidates who had missed school for a whole academic year also had to deal with special centers created by the French Cameroun political elites.
