New Changes to the BECE Examination 2022/2023

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has made new changes to the 2022 Basic Education Examination Certificate (BECE). The format of the exams will differ from what it was in prior years.

One of the most significant changes will be the possibility of having distinct questions for each district, center, and candidate.

However, the standards for each district’s and candidate’s question will be the same. Because the questions for each student may be different, no student will be able to approach a friend or other student for assistance.

Date for 2022 BECE Exams

The date for 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is 17th October 2022. The exams which will last for five days will end on Friday 21st October 2022.
