GES Directs Heads of Basic Schools Not To Repeat Any Form Two Student

 

The Ghana Education Service is cautioning heads of basic schools in public schools in the country to desist from repeating any student currently in form two who just got promoted to form three. The GES has stated categorically that it will not tolerate any repeating exercise carried out by basic school heads.

The rationale for this decision is that the current batch of students will be the last batch of the Objective Based Curriculum who will write the BECE this year. This means that the form two students who will write the BECE in 2024 will not do the Objective Based Curriculum Based exams but rather Standard Based Curriculum Assessment.

Repeated Students who have not been part of the Standard Based Curriculum will therefore struggle to compete with their colleagues who used the Standard Based Curriculum, consequently, Management is directing all Heads of Basic Schools to carry out wholesale promotion to ensure the complete phase out of the last batch of the Objective Based Curriculum.

 

Strict compliance to the directive must be ensured, according to the directive by the Management of Ghana Education Service.

It must recalled that the Standard Based Curriculum was implemented about two years ago and the first batch or product will be taking  their Assessment in 2024.
