As Calls for School Boycotts Persist, GCE Board Releases 2018 Results

The Cameroon GCE Board has released the June 2018 results. The 2018 results have witnessed an appreciable improvement from that of last year.

The O/L General have risen from 25.29% in 2017 to 50% in 2018

A/L General from 35.3% in 2017 to 67.5% in 2018

O/L Technical, from 28.4% in 2017 to 58.2% in 2018

A/L Technical, from 22.3% in 2017 to 73.4% in 2018.

The improvement in the results of this year is largely due to the fact that a good number of students returned to school as compared to the dwindling population that sat last year's exam which many believed will be canceled due to school boycotts in the North West and South West Regions.

when this became a farce, schools in the urban centres decided to reopen their doors for the 2017/2018 academic year.

An atmosphere of animosity gripped the City of Bamenda on Monday June 23rd 2018 when the results were made public.

Those who have been championing calls for school boycotts were also caught in the euphoria looking for all available means to have the results.

The Anglophone Crisis has had school boycotts as one of its strongholds. In Urban areas they was a marked improvement but in the rural areas, it was a disaster.

Close to 24 hours after the results were released, candidates still find it very difficult to access them
