The GES has emphasized that the examination will be based on the old curriculum, which is currently being used by students in form three.

This means that students who are currently in form three will have to prepare and revise based on the old curriculum to perform well in the examination.

The GES has also warned head teachers against repeating any student who was in form two at the end of the 2022 academic year since this will disadvantage such students.

It is worth noting that the 2023 will be the last examination to be based on the old curriculum. Starting in 2024, the standard-based curriculum will be used for the examination.

This new curriculum is expected to enhance teaching and learning in basic schools and ultimately improve the quality of education in Ghana.

The GES has urged all schools and teachers to familiarize themselves with the new curriculum and start preparing their students to meet the demands of the new system.

The curriculum, which was developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), aims to provide a broad-based education that promotes critical thinking and problem-solving skills, as well as creativity and innovation.

While the GES has released a tentative timetable for the 2023 BECE, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) is yet to release the official examination timetable and dates.

The GES has assured schools and students that they will be informed as soon as WAEC releases the timetable.
