The Eastern Regional Education Directorate of the Ghana Education Service has released the 2020 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results analysis.
The report captured a total of 33 Districts, 169 examination centres, 2,001 participating schools, 49,967 total candidates registered (25,754 male and 24,213 female), and 25,413 total candidates present (25,413 male ad and 23,803 female).
The Directorate said, numerous activities undertaken by the Regional and District Offices ought to yield good learning outcomes.
The report also unveiled that, the Region could not obtain at least 50% pass rate in 2020 BECE.
METHODOLOGY OF ANALYSIS
Analysis was NOT based on comparison with previous years’ performance for the following reasons:
1. the obvious reduction of figures or rates due to the split /creation of New Districts.
2. the BECE results analysis now based on aggregate 30 as pass rate instead of aggregate 36 in the previous years.
3. the need to keep focus on revealing the quality of pass rather than doing a wholesale comparison of pass rates by years.
The following recommendations were made.
1. Encourage teachers to identify problem areas in the subjects and start exposing students right from JHS.
2. Organize career guidance forums for students and sensitize them against absenteeism during examinations.
3. Encourage the Districts and Schools to learn best practices from each other
4. Introduce Inter-Circuit and Inter-District Schools Inspection and support system
5. Improve Community Participation in all schools to address the social issues
affecting education delivery and performance.
