Warning Against Scammers:

WAEC has warned candidates sternly, advising them not to fall victim to scammers who may promise to “trace” their papers or manipulate their results. Such offers are total scams, and candidates are urged to exercise caution and report any suspicious activities.

The BECE, an important examination for students in their final year of Junior High School in Ghana, plays a significant role in determining their educational path and future prospects. Understanding the grading system is crucial for candidates as they await their results.

Candidates are advised to study hard and prepare for the BECE. The results of the BECE will be used to determine which senior high school candidates will be placed in.

It is also important to note that there is no such thing as paper tracing. Scammers may try to convince candidates that they can help them trace their papers and improve their grades. However, this is a scam and candidates should not fall for it.

The BECE is a very important exam, and candidates should focus on studying hard and preparing for the exam.

These grades offer a comprehensive assessment of a candidate’s performance, with Grade A representing the highest achievement and Grade F being the lowest.

It’s essential for candidates and parents to familiarize themselves with this grading system to have a clear understanding of their performance once the results are released.
