But announcing the dates on Tuesday, the state’s Ministry of Education said that while the screening test for entrance examinations into model colleges across the state has been fixed for September 26 to October 3, the BECE would take place from October 6 to 12, 2020.
Through a statement released to newsmen by Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Education, Supo Gbadegesin, the ministry maintained the BECE examinations would commence at all designated centers across the state by 9 am daily.
“The computer-based testing version of the screening test would take place from September 26 to 30, 2020, while the paper and pencil testing version would take place on October 3, 2020, in the six education districts of the state.
