Brief Overview of the Cameroon GCE Board

2024 GCE Results Cameroon released

The Cameroon General Certificate Examination Board  (CGCEB) was officially created in 1993. This was thanks to the efforts of Anglophone community groups, such as the Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (TAC), led by Mr. Peter Chateh; churches; Confederation of Anglophone Parents’ Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (CAPTAC). ALSO, we cannot forget other trade union groups also playing a very crucial role in the creation of the board.

A text of application was signed on October 12, 1993, (Text of Application; Order Nº: 112/CAB/PM) to define and determine the administrative and financial organization of the Board.  Shortly after that, the Head of State appointed the first ever Chairman of the Board. Stakeholders chose Buea as the city to host the board.

The Cameroon GCE Board held its first session on 19 November 1993. Since 1994, the GCE Board has organized GCE examinations in Cameroon every year till date, and not even the current sociopolitical crisis could stop the exams.

The board organized the first session of the examinations as follows:

In June 1994: the board organized Exams for the General education subjects

In June 1995:  Exams were organized for the GCE Technical Education subjects.

June 1997: the board organized Exams for the Baccalaureate Technique and Related Examinations.

The GCE Board Grading System for the 2024 GCE Results in Cameroon

The Cameroon GCE Board uses letter grades in its grading system; that is A, B, C, D, E, U for Ordinary Level and A, B, C. D, E, O, and F for Advanced Level. This is done as shown below.

GCE Ordinary Level Grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, U

Letter grades A, B, and C represent a passing grade; with the A grade being the highest and the C grade being the lowest, and U (unclassified) representing a failing grade. Grades D and E are better than U but not good enough; so they are also failing grades.

Note that grades lower than C will not appear on your official certificate. However, you can find these grades on the result slip which is temporary.

Grades carry the following points:

A = 3 points

B = 2 points

C = 1 point

This means if you earn 11 A grades, you will earn 33 points (maximum number of points).

 You need at least 4 papers to consider yourself successful.

A Level Grading scale for the 2024 GCE Results in Cameroon: A, B, C, D, E, O, or F

Letter grades A, B, C, D, and E represent a passing grade. The A grade isthe highest whilethe E grade is the lowest of the passing grade. An F (fail) which is the lowest of all grades is not a passing grade and is not stated on your certificate. It is however stated on your result slip.

 An O is commonly referred to as a complementary grade and is an indication that the candidate was really close but well, not close enough, unfortunately. It is also a failing grade.

Grades carry the following points:

A = 5 points

B = 4 points

C = 3 points

D = 2 points

E =1 point

This means if you earn 5 A grades, you will earn 25 points (the maximum number of points a student can earn).

You need at least 2 papers to consider yourself successful.
