2013 CAMEROON GCE RESULTS STATISTICS AND ANALYSIS
PART A; pass rate statistics
Ordinary level: sat exam = 81,675; passed = 37,380; pass rate = 45.77%
Advanced level: sat exam = 37,870; passed = 21,197; pass rate = 55.97%
PART B; CAMEROON’S BEST TEN SCHOOLS IN THE 2013 GCE EXAMS.
This overall classification takes into account the following factors: 1) the number of students who sat the exam (2) the overall pass rate (3) the proportion of students who passed in 10 and 11 subjects at the Ordinary level (4) the proportion of students who passed in 4 and 5 subjects at the Advanced level (5) the proportion of students who scored at least 23 points at the Advanced level and the proportion who scored at least 27 points at the Ordinary level (6) the percentage of students who achieved an A grade in mathematics (7) the percentage of students who achieved an A grade in English language (8) the average number of A grades achieved by the whole school at the Ordinary Level (9) the average number of A grades achieved by the whole school at the Advanced Level if the school has a second cycle.
What do we mean by ‘average’? Example; if 350 candidates of school ‘P’ did the Ordinary level exam and altogether achieved 60 A grades, then the average number of A grade(s) per student is 60 divided by 350, which gives 0.171 A grade per student. If 70 candidates of school ‘T’ did the Ordinary Level exam and altogether achieved 42 A grades, then the average number of A grade(s) per student is 42 divided by 70, which gives an average of 0.6 A grade per student. Comparing school ‘P’ with school ‘T’ with respect to the overall quality of grades, school T did better than school P because its grade ‘A’ average  was bigger.
(English language; this is the most important subject at the Ordinary level in Anglophone Cameroon. Out of 88,789 candidates who did the English language exam, only 97 achieved an A grade).
1st SACRED HEART COLLEGE, MANKON, BAMENDA

4th SAKER BAPTIST COLLEGE, LIMBE
The girls of Saker Baptist College believe that their school is the best in the whole of Cameroon when you put together all aspects of school life and that they have the most colourful and vibrant ex-students (called Sakerettes) in the world. They cannot wait to join the glamour world of the Sakerettes after they leave school. The main Sakerettes website, called Saker Pride (www.sakerpride.com), is the most elaborate and glamorous ex-students’ website in the entire world. One can get hooked on this website for many hours before realising they’ve got other work to do.
The school had a 96% (96/100) pass rate at the Advanced level and 99.05% (104/105) at the Ordinary level.

6th ST BENEDICT’S COLLEGE, MVOLYE, YAOUNDE
If Sacred Heart College, Bamenda, is to be knocked off the top position in the schools’ performance league table in future, it is very likely that this would be the first school to do it. This catholic school was opened in September 2007 and its first batch has not yet done the Advanced level but its second batch did the Ordinary level this year. It is a pleasure to have a detailed look at this school’s results.
At the Ordinary level, the school achieved a 100% pass rate with all 90 students passing. The 90 students achieved a total of 265 A grades, giving an average of 2.94 A grades per student, the highest overall A grade average in Cameroon this year. 37 students achieved an A grade in maths (41.1% of students, 3rd in Cameroon) and 2 had an A grade in English. The best three students were Boum Asta Yvette (10A,1B), Celestine Bilong Mbangtang (10A,1B) and Nziko Nda-si Toghoua (10A,1B).
7th ST BEDES COLLEGE, ASHING
St Bedes, a school that has been criticised for their dirty toilets and unclean water, has at least one thing that it can be proud of; the school’s exam results have been consistently good. At the Advanced level, the school had a 96.81% (91/94) pass rate with 30 students passing in five subjects and 22 in four subjects. There was a total of 23 A grades, giving an average of 0.24 A grade per student (12th in Cameroon). Its three best students were Mullah C Fuh (5A), Koua Kemegne (4A,1B) and Marietta Akumbom (3A,2C).

8th ST JOSEPH’S COLLEGE SASSE, BUEA
Sasse College had a 100% pass rate at both the Advanced level (106/106) and the Ordinary level (94/94) for the third year in a row. At the Advanced level, its 106 students achieved a total of 26 A grades, giving an average of 0.24 A grade per student (11th in Cameroon). 35 students passed in 5 subjects and 65 passed in four.

The school’s best three students at the Ordinary level were Ngani Phillipe Alain (10A,1B), Tendonge Awo (9A,2B) and Fotio Mbohou (9A,1B,1C).
9th SEAT OF WISDOM, FONTEM
This school is hardly talked about because of its size (small number of students) and geographical location even though it always does well in GCE examinations. It should be proud of its 100% pass rates at both the Advanced level (50/50) and Ordinary level (42/42). At the Advanced level, its 50 students achieved a total of 26 A grades, giving an average of 0.52 A grade per student (2nd in Cameroon). 17 students passed in 5 subjects and 14 students passed in four. The school’s best three students at the Advanced level were Akem Aristide Tanyi-Jong (5A), Forcha Peter Oben-Akem (5A) and Atemkeng Alemajo Confidence (3A,2B).
At the Ordinary level, the school’s 42 students achieved a total of 50 A grades giving an average of 1.19 A grades per student. 14 students passed in 11 subjects and 13 passed in ten. 7 students achieved an A grade in maths, but there was no student with an A grade in English language. The best three students were Judith Etaka Eyong (7A,3B,1C), Fowedlung Ngimafac (4A,7B) and Fejo Zangue (4A,5B,2C).
10th GOVERNMENT BILINGUAL HIGH SCHOOL (GBHS), BAMENDA
It is very difficult to distinguish between government schools in Cameroon. Performances in Ordinary level mathematics by most government schools are so bad that UNESCO should intervene, as the Cameroon government is doing nothing about it. It is a shame that in many government schools, not more than 6% of the students pass maths. Targets are not set and nobody is held accountable for the high rate of ‘U’ grades in Ordinary level mathematics by students of government schools.
GBHS Bamenda, despite having many poor students, has an ethos that motivates staff to work very hard for their students. That is why this school tops the table of government schools and even performs better than many Christian schools across English-speaking Cameroon. Congratulations to the students of this school who also work very hard and always aim to do as well as their peers in neighbouring Christian schools, such as Sacred Heart, Lourdes and PSS. GBHS Bamenda had a pass rate of 85.34% (396/464) at the Advanced level, with four students each having 5 straight ‘A’ grades (John Kengafac (5A), Ngoufack Paterson (5A), Bebonchu Nkemzi Syntia (5A) and Kati Frantz (5A), 2nd highest number of 5A grades in Cameroon after Sacred Heart Bamenda. 74 students passed in five subjects and 73 passed in four.
The pass rate at the Ordinary level was 69.91% (388/555). The 555 students achieved a total of 248 A grades.
