Debunking All False Information About BECE Results

2024 BECE Date, Likely Subjects and Curriculum To Be Used Debunking All False Information About Released BECE Results

Soon, the 2023 BECE results will be released by WAEC, but before then, let us debunk the myths or false information (all the lies you hear) about the BECE results.

There are a number of myths about the released BECE results that circulate among students, parents, and teachers.

These myths can be harmful because they can lead to unnecessary stress and anxiety, and they can also discourage students from working hard in school.

Myth 1: BECE results change online 

The belief by some students that the BECE results change online after they have been released is not true. Often, candidates who fail to do well and want to throw the dust into the eyes of their parents, friends, and society. Once they check the results, and it is bad, they start telling others that, for instance, when they first checked it, it was 8-ones but after checking it again two days later, the result changed to 19. This is a big lie, and do not believe any student who makes such a statement.

Some students may exaggerate their grades or even make up grades altogether. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to impress friends or family, to get into a better school, or to avoid getting into trouble with their parents. “BECE results change online” is False Information About Released BECE Results.

Myth 2: Students who do not perform well on the BECE cannot succeed in secondary school.

This is not true. While the BECE results are important, they are not the only factor that determines success in secondary school. Students who do not perform well on the BECE can still succeed in secondary school if they are willing to work hard and take advantage of the resources that are available to them.

This is another falsehood that every student must reject when the results are released.

Myth 3: Every student who scores 7 to 9-ones will be placed in their category A school choice

This is never true since the placement of candidates into schools depends on several factors. The competition in a given school, the competition for a given programme, the grades, and the raw scores of competitive students for the limited slots all contribute to being placed in a school. Again, where a student writes the BECE as a private school candidate, there is even more challenge in getting placed in a Category A school than for public school candidates who choose the same school.

Myth 4: Every BECE graduate will be placed in a school

This is never true, even with the introduction of the Free SHS. Any BECE candidate who scores grade 9 in mathematics or integrated science is never placed in any school, even if he or she makes grade 1 in all other subjects. Such students are also not given the chance to do self-placement. There are, however, two options left for such students. They may opt for private SHS or retake the BECE next year.

Myth 5: The BECE is a pass/fail exam.

This is also not true. The BECE is a graded exam, and students can receive grades ranging from 1 to 9.

The grades that students receive on the BECE are used to determine their placement in secondary school. But know that grade 9 in any core subject will limit your chances of getting placed in a school of your choice.

False information about their future plans: Some students may claim to have been accepted into prestigious schools or to have been offered scholarships, even if this is not true. This type of false information can be spread in order to make the student seem more successful or to boost their own confidence.
