The 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) graduates are set to embark on the next phase of their education as they make their way to Senior High Schools (SHS) next week.

As these students take this major step forward, it’s important to understand what to expect and what they can do to ensure a smooth transition.

According to the management of Ghana Education Service, the placement list for 2022 BECE Students will be released by close of February.

Form one students will resume on February 20, 2023 and go on break from April in the same year, according to the GES Academic Calendar.

Additional Information

The BECE is a comprehensive exam that assesses the abilities and skills of students in their final year of Junior High School (JHS).

This exam is administered by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and covers a wide range of subjects, including English, mathematics, science, social studies, and more.

Once the students have successfully passed the BECE, they will be awarded a certificate, signifying their completion of JHS and eligibility to move on to SHS.

This certificate is an important document for the students as it will be required for admission into SHS and for future academic and career opportunities.

The transition from JHS to SHS can be a big step for students, but it’s important to remember that this is just the beginning of a new journey.

The students will be exposed to new subjects, new teachers, and new environments, which can be exciting and challenging at the same time.

To ensure a smooth transition, it’s crucial that the students are well-prepared and organized. This includes familiarizing themselves with their new school, getting to know their classmates and teachers, and getting involved in extracurricular activities.

It’s also important to set goals and establish a study plan, so that the students can stay on track and make the most of their time in SHS.
