Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates who achieve an aggregate score of more than 25 have been advised to consider retaking the exam instead of seeking placement in Senior High Schools.
Private legal practitioner and Vice President of Imani Africa, Mr. Kofi Bentil, on his Facebook page emphasized that it is more sensible to retake the exam if one has scored above 25 and wants to secure placement.

The former Minister of Communications, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah, has also expressed concern about the issue of BECE candidates who obtain aggregate scores of 25 and 35, suggesting that steps must be taken to correct this worrying trend.
The issue has led to social media activists commenting on the students’ performance. However, Dr. Omane Boamah has urged people not to make fun of the students’ scores, but to take time to understand the root causes of this problem and find solutions to it.
