The Management of the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) has released Cert II examinations results of candidates who sat for the subjects and elective component examinations in 2021.
Dr Fred Kyei Asamoah, the Director-General of the Technical Commission Friday said candidates can access their results online using their index numbers and unique reference number to be given to them by their academic institutions.
He said candidates for the Access programme are to contact their respective centres for their results adding that his outfit has withheld the provisional results of 160 prospective students from some schools over malpractice.
The candidates withheld results the Director-General of the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) said will be released after the conclusion of the investigation into the examination fraud.
Mr Fred Kyei Asamoah pointed out that those irregularities include collusion, bringing foreign materials and electronic devices into the examination halls and exchanging examination question papers and answer booklets.
A total number of 28,834 candidates representing 21,054 males and 7,780 females from 175 public and private technical institutions sat for the national examination at 120 centres throughout the country.
The Certificate II Examination consists of two parts; the Core subjects and the Elective components, with the core subjects made up of English Language, Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies and Entrepreneurship.
The Management of the Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) Monday, September 13, 2021, ended the May/June Certificate II Core subjects examination which started on September 6, 2021.
In a related development, the Deputy Minister for Education, Gifty Twum-Ampofo has said students studying under the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) this year will sit for an examination conducted by WAEC.
Mrs Gifty Twum-Ampofo said the WAEC examination slated for this year for the Technical and Vocational students will also reduce cases of them struggling to get admission to various tertiary institutions apart from technical universities.
She said the Akufo-Addo government was positioning TVET education as a project focus by improving the quality of training through a more demand-driven direction that would upgrade the skills set of both students and teachers.
“The importance of academic qualifications, together with the growth of university enrolment has made it very difficult for TVET students to enrol into regular university programmes, but we are willing to reverse it,” the Minister stated.
