Brief History of the Cameroon GCE

The Cameroon GCE board was officially created in 1993, thanks to the efforts of Anglophone community groups, such as the Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (TAC), led by Mr. Peter Chateh; churches; Confederation of Anglophone Parents’ Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (CAPTAC), with other trade union groups also playing a very crucial role in the creation of the board.

A text of application was signed on October 12, 1993, (Text of Application; Order Nº: 112/CAB/PM) to define and determine the administrative and financial organization of the Board and this led to the appointment of the pioneer Chairman of the Board.

The Cameroon GCE Board held its first session on 19 November 1993. Since then GCE examinations in Cameroon have been organized by the Cameroon GCE Board every year till date.

The Cameroon GCE Board organized the first sessions of its examinations as follows:

In June 1994 for the General education subjects

In June 1995 For the GCE Technical Education subjects and For the Baccalaureat Technique and Related Examinations in June 1997.

The GCE Board Grading System for the GCE Results 2021

The Cameroon GCE Board uses letter grades in its grading system. This is done as shown 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 are better than U but are also failed grades.

Grades lower than C are not stated on the official certificate but you can however find these grades on the result slip which is temporary.

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 is 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.
