The Commission for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (CTVET) has announced the commencement of this year’s May/June Certificate II exams for TVET students across Ghana.

The examinations, which began on July 1st, will continue until August 2nd, 2024, with a total of 52,133 candidates participating.

According to a press release  signed by Albert Opare, Head of Corporate Affairs at CTVET, the candidates include 37,558 males and 14,575 females. This year’s exams will once again feature the serialization of questions, a measure introduced last year to curb cheating.

The examinations cover a wide range of technical and vocational subjects, including Certificate II, Erstwhile NVTI Certificate II, and various technical certifications such as Technician Part I, Technician Part II, and Technician Part III. Additionally, students are being tested in Diploma, Diploma in Business Studies (DBS), and Advanced level examinations.

CTVET emphasised its ongoing efforts to enhance TVET assessment through a national quality assurance system. This system accredits training providers, facilitators, assessors, and internal verifiers to deliver and evaluate competency-based training programs.

The Commission expressed optimism that the students would perform well, enabling them to advance academically or successfully enter the workforce.
