The Francophone government has made it public that the practical part of the 2017 June session of the General Certificate of Education, GCE, will begin tomorrow Monday May 15, 2017 in all Centers across the country including students who did not register for the examination.
The decision to allow those who did not registered for the 2017 GCE session was taken by the Francophone Secondary Education Minister, Jean Ernest Massena Ngale Bibehe while on a tour of Southern Cameroons territory. The Minister revealed that new centers have been created and those who did not register will be separated from the eligible candidates.
Tight Security has been previewed for Monday in all the centers following assurance that came from Mr. Jean Ernest Massena. This year, the corrupt management of the GCE Board announced that some 129 000 students registered for the exams— 54 000 less than last year’s figures.
The Cameroon Anglophone Civil Society Consortium has warned parents to keep their children at home at all times and to also boycott the so-called National Day parades coming up on May the 20th. The newly created military wing of the Southern Cameroons revolution known as the ‘black vipers’ have promised to ruthlessly crush any student whoever dares to go out to take part in this year’s GCE. The Francophone government has assured parents that nothing will happen to their children.
Several candidates who fled the troubled North West and South West regions will be writing in Douala, Bafoussam and Yaoundé.
