Introduction of the GCE in Anglophone Cameroon
GCE which stands for General Certificate of Education is the system put in place in the late 90s after feasibility studies were carried out by experts from Cameroon and Britain. These studies held in January 1976 when the main characteristics of the examination were defined. After choosing the name, objectives were set on what was expected for the Ordinary Level and Advanced level Examinations. The maximum and minimum number of subjects to register for was specified alongside the least number of subjects to be considered a pass. Other specifications made were linked to the grading system, question type, style of marking, and security measures among others.
Presidential Decree No:76/555 of the 24th of November 1976 instituted the General Certificate of Education Examination in Cameroon, marking the beginning of its application. During the Cameroonisation of the GCE examination, a tentative program was drafted and students sat for the first time in June 1977.
However, the educational system in Anglophone Cameroon was totally different back in 1944 when most secondary schools in Southern Cameroon had as final examination the UCLES (University of Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate). Being a group Certificate examination, it was taken at three levels. The Cambridge Higher School Certificate and Senior Cambridge were taken in Upper sixth and form six respectively. And lastly, the Junior Cambridge was reserved for students in form four.
The system changed a decade later when Southern Cameroon went in for the West African school Certificate Examination after stepping back from the Cambridge Examination Board. This new examination came to life in 1951 and stood in place till 1961 when East Cameroon re-united with Southern Cameroon.
The last step before the current GCE system was the adoption of the University of London General Certificate of Education Examination in the year 1963. This was mainly under the rule of the London experts until the year 1976 when the Cameroonian government stepped in. Indeed, the back then Ministry of National Education began the Cameroonisation of the GCE by taking over the conduct of the examinations.
At that point, three authorities were involved and all agreed on a tripartite liaison for the governing of the GCE Board. The parties were; the University of London and the British Government, the Senate House, and, the Department of examinations. The main role of the British was to assist in the organization and implementation of the Cameroon GCE examinations. They partook in the supply of consultants and external examiners, drafting of syllabuses, and the training of Cameroonian personnel. Lastly, the University of London agreed to do the necessary which later led to the recognition of the Cameroon GCE examination results and certificates at the international level. The GCE ran smoothly following the set agreements until 1984 when a need for change arose and led to the creation of the GCE Board.
Creation of the GCE Board
The running of the GCE examinations began wrecking in 1984 when some London official starting drawing back from their participation. This became a huge problem in 1990 when the University of London Examination and Assessment Council completely ended its role with the Cameroon GCE. Observed irregularities became a real call for concern with errors occurring at almost all levels. There was a shortage of question papers; others were numbered wrongly while some were simply poorly printed. More severe issues like the postponement of some papers to be written were equally observed. At that moment, the Prime Minister responded by creating a technical committee charged with the organization and functioning of the GCE Examination. This was signed as order No: 194/CAB/PM of the 11th of September, 1992 and came into effect in 1993 with Presidential Decree No: 93/172 of 1st July 1993 which created the Board. By the decree, the GCE Board was empowered to organize the Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations of the General Certificate of Education in Cameroon.
