In January this year, the GES said it had come to its attention that some heads of public basic schools had made some students, who were in JHS 2 last academic year and were supposed to progress to JHS 3 this academic year, repeat.

The management of GES, it said, took a serious exception to the practice due to the fact that the current JHS three students were the last batch of objective-based curriculum candidates who would write the final BECE under the said syllabus this year.
