- A JHS graduate has got people talking after a video of her checking her BECE results with a calculator went viral
- The young girl, per her calculations of the grades, scored an aggregate of 40
- Many people who saw the video came to the conclusion that she didn't take her studies seriously
A video showing a Ghanaian girl computing her Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results using a calculator has gone viral on social media.
The video, which YEN.com.gh sighted on the X page of @sergio_de_ennin, showed the young girl standing in an open place, reportedly after printing her BECE results slip.
Unaware that she was being filmed, the young girl looked very serious as she keyed in the grades on each subject to calculate her overall aggregate.
The tail end of the video showed that the JHS graduate had clocked an aggregate of 40 in the BECE, judging from the calculations she made on her phone.
The 12-second video was captioned:
"BECE results wey calculator all come inside"
Watch the video:
Ghanaians stunned by the actions of the young girl
Many people who saw the video were stunned by the aggregate the young girl had in the BECE, with many saying she didn't take her studies seriously.
She no dey barb the result

The most heart breaking part is,they will tell you it's provisional results
If the grades are good enough, you don’t need a calculator
She failed before the results were even out
Enhance transparency in computerized school placement process
An educationist, Mr Daniel Fenyi in an interview with YEN.com.gh, called for GES authorities to ensure that the computerized school placement process is transparent
"Implement transparent and automated school placement systems to minimize human intervention and manipulation. Utilize technology to streamline the placement process, reducing the likelihood of manual interference and creating a more efficient and accountable system."
Mr Fenyi also called for public education on the school placement process and encouraged that stiffer punishment be meted out to officials caught trying to engage in colluded practices.
"Raise awareness among students and parents about the fair and unbiased school placement process, ensuring they understand the criteria and procedures involved. Involve the public in discussions about the school placement process, seeking feedback and suggestions to improve the system's fairness and effectiveness," he told YEN.com.gh.
BECE girl speaks fluent English
She was able to achieve this with her remarkable fluency and unwavering confidence in achieving exceptional results.
"As my sister said earlier, in our family we don't fail, so I'm expecting 9 ones," she said.
What truly stood out was her unique manner of responding with "Affirmative" instead of a simple "Yes" to each question posed.
