Sierra Leone’s Education Minister, Conrad Sackey, is set to unveil the 2023 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results on Friday, October 27, 2023.

The BECE, overseen by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), is taken by third-year Junior High School students . This examination serves dual purposes: determining eligibility for senior secondary education and certifying junior secondary education completion.

Earlier in July and August, 130,857 students sat for the 2023 BECE in Sierra Leone, with a breakdown of 63,750 (48.72%) males and 67,107 (51.28%) females.
