The GCE Board Grading System
The Cameroon GCE Board uses letter grades in its grading system. This is done as illustrated below.
GCE O Level Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, U
Letter grades A, B, and C represent a passing grade, with the A grade being the highest and the C grade being the lowest, and U (unclassified) representing a fail. Grades D and E though better than U are also fail grades.
Grades lower than C are not stated on the official certificate but are however stated on the result slip which is temporarily.
A = 3 points
B = 2 points
C = 1 point
You need at least 4 papers to consider yourself successful.
GCE A Level Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, O or F
Letter grades A, B, C, D, and E represent a passing grade; with the A grade being the highest and the E grade being the lowest. An F (fail) which is the lowest is not a passing grade and is not stated on the certificate. It is however stated on the result slip.
An O commonly referred to as a complementary grade and indicates that the candidate was close but yet not close enough, unfortunately. It is also a failing grade.
A = 5 points
B = 4 points
C = 3 points
D = 2 points
E =1 point
You need at least 2 papers to consider yourself successful.
Ahead of the publication of the result, there have been some predictions regarding the performance of the candidates.
According to some examiners, the overall performance will be about 82%.
They have also predicted a 77% passed in the Ordinary Level.
Even with the current pandemic, the 2020 session of the exams went on hitch free across the crisis-hit North West and South West regions of the country.
Cameroon GCE Results 2019
Ahead of the publication of the result, the Minister of Secondary Education Dr. Pauline Nalova Lyonga Egbe visited marking centers in Buea and expressed her satisfaction on the efforts sacrifice, and resilience of the markers.
She also congratulated all the stakeholders for heeding to the instructions in organizing a hitch-free examination. Dr. Nalova Lyonga went further to thank the government for the support throughout the written phase, marking and publication of the results.
While we wait for the publication of the 2019 results, lets go down memory lane to 2018 and look at how the publication of the results was received by candidates, so we can know what to expect this year.
The publication of the 2020 Cameroon GCE results brought joy to many but left others heartbrokren.
On that fateful daye, at the premises of the Bilingual Grammar School Molyko , it was a steady queue of eager students, (some accompanied by their Parents, friends and love ones) most with mobile phones, streaming to the notice board of the institution.
Others were seen around the vicinity of the GCE board which is a stone throw from Bilingual Grammar School with mobile phones as well trying to see if the results will be published online.
At specific locations were teachers, parent, friends and love ones congratulating those who excelled.
Gradually in groups of four or five, the students congregated and their facial expression could tell a story of its own.
There were shouts of joy, hugs and giggling on one end while lamentation and regrets was observed in the same campus.
According to Atem Margaret, a student of GHS Motombolombo Tiko, “I’m super elated knowing that the efforts I put in have paid off”
Another fortunate candidate from G.H.S Bokwaongo states; “I’m very happy because I will be going to high school in September and I think I’m very fortunate”
Some even went as far as jumping, dancing, and running, screaming and falling into pools of mud just to express their happiness.
However, the scenario was different at the gate of some schools. We could find students in tears, lamenting at the thought of another year in the same class. Well, the obvious question is ‘’did they prepare enough?” Remember, “if you fail to prepare, you’re preparing to fail.”
However, they may not have failed because they didn’t prepare. It could in fact be as a result of several circumstances; for example the sociopolitical crisis in the two English speaking regions where most of the candidates are based.
Although the GCE Board’s delay to publish the results has left most students and parents upset, we are hoping that the announcement of the release of the Cameroon GCE Results 2020 will be amazing this year.
Several students and parents have expressed disappointments on the way the board operates with regards to the publication of the results. According to them, it is hard to believe that students still face a lot of difficulties when it comes to getting their results at this digital age.
According to them, it would be best if the board can upload the results on their webpage or send or better still keep the students updated on when exactly the results will be released. To them, students go through a lot of stress and trauma in the process of getting their results especially because fake results keep circulating on the social media.
GCE 2019 Statistics
Last year, 104457 candidates registered for the GCE as against 129071 candidates in 2018, thus, a drop by 24614 (19%).
2019 GCE O/L = 65638
2018 GCE O/L = 78579
2019 GCE A/L = 30498
2018 GCE A/L = 40192
2019 GCE O/L Technical = 4700
2018 GCE O/L Technical = 5300
2019 GCE A/L Technical = 3621
2018 GCE A/L Technical = 5000
The statistics show that there has been a general drop in the number of registered candidates at all levels of the examination.
The crisis is definitely going to adversely affect the outcome of the exams and the credibility of the results to be issued by the GCE Board is another major debate topic. Despite positive predictions from examiners, many fear that the results this year may be one of the worst ever recorded by the Board.
This is particularly because the crisis started in 2016 when the students who sat for the O/L were in Form Three. The GCE O/L syllabuses begin from Form Three to Form Five. As for the A/L students, they got into high school in September 2017 when the crisis was already on for almost a year.
As a result, it is certain that these students have not had even just one effective academic year to prepare for the exams. It’s also obvious that most of them did not complete their syllabuses.
In places like Lebialem division and Muyuka subdivision where the impact of the crisis has been severely felt, many are left to wonder if there were any exams there at all because no school attendance has been recorded there for several months.
A general drop was also recorded in the registration of Baccalaureate Technique and Baccalaureate Brevet de technicien.
The Cameroon GCE Board is responsible for organizing the British system of Education throughout the national territory of Cameroon.
The GCE Board has its headquarters in Buea, in the south West region of Cameroon.
