The Resit for the Basic Education Certificate Examination has started today at various examination centers.
The BECE resit was introduced last year to provide pupils who could not pass the Basic Examination for the first time a second opportunity to rewrite their paper to better their grades.
At the Bolgatanga Girls’ Senior High School, the only center in the Upper East region, about 150 pupils are sitting for this year’s examination.
A pupil who spoke to kuulpeeps.com said she was very optimistic of making good grades this time around because she had had enough time and space to revise her notes properly.
Supervisor for the center indicated that, although there are supposed to be age restrictions, it occurs to him that it has been overlooked considering the age of some of the pupils.
He mentioned that the exams was going on smoothly and nothing untoward had been registered
The exams will run from today, February 15th and end on Friday February 19th.
