The Lagos State Ministry of Education has announced an extension for the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) registration deadline. Orunsolu Adebayo, Director of Lagos State Examinations Board, issued a statement outlining the new deadline and its impact on Public Junior Secondary Schools, approved Private Junior Secondary Schools, and Special Schools.
Deadline Extension Details:
Originally set for April 14, the registration deadline for the 2023 BECE has now been extended to April 28. This two-week extension addresses the challenges schools face during the registration process caused by the Central Bank of Nigeria’s cashless policy and unreliable network services.
Reason for the Extension:
The Lagos State government recognizes the difficulties experienced by schools and does not want to deny any school or its candidates the opportunity to participate in the examination. As a result, the deadline extension has been implemented to ensure that all affected schools have ample time to complete the registration process.
Call to Action:
All schools affected by the initial registration deadline are encouraged to take advantage of the extended deadline. It is important to note that no further excuses will be entertained after the new deadline of April 28. This is a great opportunity for schools and students to ensure their participation in the 2023 BECE, so don’t miss out!
The Lagos State Ministry of Education has committed to providing equal opportunities for all schools and students by extending the BECE registration deadline. Affected schools should use this chance to complete the registration process and guarantee their students’ participation in the important examination. Remember, the new deadline is April 28 – act now to secure your place in the 2023 BECE.
