The total number of private students who wrote the exams make a total of 11,886 consisting 6,886 males and 5,000 females.

In the selection of schools, WAEC has revealed that private candidates who sat the private BECE in February this year should visit the WAEC’s website for the selection of senior high schools of their choice.

The BECE exams in Ghana have always been fraught with cases of exam malpractice especially when many students are always tempted with the urge to secure for themselves copies of leaked exam questions, popularly known as 'apor'.

The West African Examination Council (WAEC) warned against this especially when half a million of students across the country (509,824) sat for their BECE today, June 4th.

According to WAEC, “candidates are cautioned against engaging in any examination malpractice of any form, especially collusion, which is prevalent at the BECE".

All forms of cheating, according to the exams council, can be detected by the Item Differentia Profile (IDP) in their objective tests, or in their script during marking.
