Candidates for the 2016 General Certificate of Education, GCE Advanced Level practicals are still busy in various examination centres in Buea and the rest of the South West Region. On Monday, May 16, 2016, Cameroon Tribune observed that the examinations were going on hitch-free in the various centres visited. At the Bilingual Grammar School Molyko, Buea, where some 508 students were undergoing their practicals in Biology, Nathanie Okenyi, one of the supervisors, told reporters that all was going on well.
He said the examination started at 8 am and ended at 11 am for the first session. He added that all the candidates were present and all the equipment ready. Nathanie Okenyi further explained that the students started the examination apparently without pressure and followed instructions strictly. At 8 am, Cameroon Tribune noticed that Paper 3 Biology 710 was going on. The supervisor explained that there has been an innovation this year.
"Form ABA25 that we usually write on has a different presentation. It does not have flap to cut. It is a full paper itself that students write on and it is well designed. The spaces are appropriate and clearer that drawing can be done on them because it is a clean white sheet," the supervisor explained. Nathanie Okenyi noted that there were no hitches at the Molyko centre for now.
At the end of the practicals yesterday, one candidate, Ananga Cordine Mbah, told Cameroon Tribune that the examination was within reach. "I had little time to carry on with the required activities. However, the examination was within reach as I did my best." Another candidate, Che Tambong Sei Ntsu, said the practicals were challenging, but was optimistic about making it.
