Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State has approved a subsidised cost for the 2024 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for students in public schools across the state.

About 55,150 candidates are to write the exams in Kwara State.

A statement by Peter Amogbonjaye, the press secretary in the state ministry of education and human capital development, said all candidates in public schools would pay N2,500, the same amount charged last year, instead of N5,000.

The subsidy is part of the efforts of the administration to support the students and their parents, as well as avoid any student dropping out of school on account of the inability to afford the examination.
