Overview of Cameroon GCE Board, Examinations and Results
The Cameroon General Certificate of Education Board known as Cameroon GCE Board is the public examination board responsible for setting examinations, marking them, and distributing results for Anglo-Saxon Cameroonian secondary school students at two stages; Stage 1: The GCE Ordinary Level (“O Level”), a subject-based qualification conferred as part of the General Certificate of Education, for students having completed a 5-year secondary education program, with students qualifying to sit the GCE O’ Level examinations; and Stage 2: The GCE Advanced Level (“A Level”), another subject-based qualification conferred as part of the General Certificate of Education, as well as a school leaving qualification offered by the educational bodies and authorities to students completing secondary or pre-university education, for students having completed a 2-year High School education program, and who have previously sat and been successful in at least 4 GCE O’ Level subjects.

Brief History of Cameroon GCE BOARD
The Cameroon GCE board was officially created in 1993, according to a book titled “The Cameroon GCE Crisis: A Test of Anglophone Solidarity.” The book says the creation of the board was spearheaded by Anglophone community groups, such as the Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (TAC), lead by Mr. Peter Chateh; churches; Confederation of Anglophone Parents’ Teachers’ Association of Cameroon (CAPTAC), with other trade union groups also playing a pivot role in the creation of the board.
It took 10 years, from 1983 to October 1993 for a consensus to be reached by the aforementioned groups and the Government of Cameroon to create an examination board to award certificates to Anglophone Cameroonian students.
Before the Cameroon GCE board came into existence in 1993, certificates were awarded to Anglophone Cameroonian students by the General Certificate of Education in the UK as it was a Trust Territory under British administration (known as British Cameroons) from 1922 to 1961.
Guidelines To Prepare For Success In Cameroon GCE Examinations Ordinary Level; What to do.
Trust me when I say GCE O-Levels are really simple to ace. I got straight As for O-Levels and it wasn’t much of a challenge, to be honest.
What you have to do is as follows:
- Study 3 subjects a day. I bet you’ll remember stuff better. Content is a breeze.
- Have a timetable and stick to it.
- Never study on your bed or anywhere near it.
- Listen to classical music once in a while. Just make sure there are no lyrics whatsoever.
- When you are trying to memorize, read through once, read and take notes by hand the following time, and lastly close your book and try to write what you just learned.
- Another great way to score is to memorize answering techniques.
- Use diagrams to help understand better
- Never refer to the answer sheet until you’ve completed the entire paper.
- Just before the exam, read through the notes once.
