The next teacher licensure examination is scheduled for January 2019 after the maiden edition was held on Monday, 10 September 2018.
This was contained in a statement by the Ghana Education Service (GES) on Tuesday, 17 September 2018.
The statement, signed by the Head of Public Relations Unit at GES, Ekow Vincent Assafuah, said the National Teaching Council (NTC), which organised the examination, has acknowledged success in the first edition and the results will be ready in the middle of October 2018.
Prospective candidates have, therefore, been advised to wait for the registration timelines for the second edition of the examination.
Meanwhile, out of a total of 28,766 candidates who sat for the first teacher licensure exam, only seven candidates possessed a Master’s Degree.
3,885 candidates were First Degree holders; 24, 687 were Diploma students and 187 were Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) certificate holders.
The statement admitted there were some problems during the examination, including delays in starting as well as “rumours of leakage” of examination questions.
