GCE online registration in Cameroon 2020
The Cameroon General Certificate of Education (GCE Board) organizes and runs the GCE online registration process to help reduce the crowdedness at normal registration centers and also to enable external candidates to register for the examination smoothly. Over the years, registering for the GCE manually in different centers has often been an issue.
The GCE online registration process has been highly applauded by both parents and students, given that, it eases the registration process and cuts off certain ghost costs usually inflated by “long throat” administrators in the registration centers. It equally helps avoid loss of data and certain nuances since everything can be tracked through an online database globally.

As for the GCE June 2020 session of the examination, the launching of the registration process is still to take place as of the time of writing of this article and the board is certainly doing its best to make the process as easy as possible for everyone.
We shall make available all necessary information here on cameroonoutlook.com as soon as the GCE Board launches the opening of the registration process.
The examination is normally at two levels which include GCE Ordinary level written at form five and GCE Advanced Level written at Upper Sixth. Note that the Cameroon GCE Board has both GCE Technical (for technical school candidates) and GCE General (for general education candidates). Check out the New Examination Structure for English Technical Schools in Cameroon (ATC & ITC).
Candidates who wish to sit in for the exam are always advised to put in their possible best to see into it that they register within the time frame put by the GCE Board. This is because it is no longer as it was in those manual days where the principal could always try to help late comers and or the latter simply paid late entry fees. Today, the system runs on an automated program and once it is the closing date, it automatically stops to operate.
