The Inspector General of Education in the Ministry of Secondary Education, Jean Paul Marcellin Mebada led a team of MINESEC officials in the presence of the Divisional Delegate of Secondary Education for Mfoundi Division, on a working visit to evaluate the unfolding of the 2024 session of the BEPC and CAP examinations.

The schools visited were Government High School Cite Verte, Government Technical High School Yaounde II, and Al Haramain Private Islamic College. In each of the schools visited, the officials conducted a thorough evaluation of the facilities and resources, making sure the candidates were duly registered, noting the number of absent cases, inquiring the state of default candidates, inspecting the examination halls to ensure the sitting positions were respected and that they each had invigilators. They equally ensured that the document specifying the modalities for the payment of examination officials was put up in all the centres for transparency. They also enquired about the availability of the financial resources to facilitate the immediate payment of the staff involved in the exams.

Besides emphasizing on the unfolding of the examination, strict attention was guided towards the necessary security measures put in place and the sanitary conditions of the said centres. It was with immense satisfaction the officials found out that all schools in addition to their regular security agents had a minimum of two members of forces of law and order to ensure the safety and wellbeing of candidates throughout the examination period. As concerns the sanitary measures, the toilets of the three schools were visited and with utmost satisfaction, the officials found them clean, having running water and above all respecting the norms of gender; as both boys and girls had separate toilets.

Overall, the visit to the three schools in Yaounde provided a valuable insight into the administration of BEPC and CAP examinations, with the officials noting that the exams were being conducted in a fair and transparent manner as various centre heads took their responsibilities seriously.
