The word ‘Board’ has been misspelt as ‘Boad’ on GCE Advance level certificates issued from 2014.
The issue has since raised fears and doubts over the authenticity of such certificates.
Some holders of the certificates say they worry they might face rejection on the international scene.
A certificate holder has said his certificate has been termed “made in Yaounde”, meaning “fake” after a failed attempt at international recognition of his qualification.
This has sparked agitation among other certificate holders over fears of also seeing their documents rejected.
The upheavals come at a time when GCE ordinary and advance level examinations are still going on in Anglo-Saxon learning institutions across the country.
During the early stage of the ongoing August session of the GCE ordinary level, Economics was cancelled after questions were allegedly leaked to candidates.
The GCE Board has nevertheless remained one of Cameroon’s most credible examination bodies since it’s creation in 1993.
Before then, certificates to Cameroonian Anglo-Saxon students were issued by the General Certificate of Education in the United Kingdom.
