  • Candidates who wish to offer purely TVET programs must select all six (6) TVET Institutes from categories A, B, and C as Day or Boarding.
  • Candidates who wish to offer program choice in relation to future job prospects such as Engineers, Physicians, astronauts, etc. must select STEM/Science in all their choices from Categories A, B, and C as Day or Boarding.

Candidates and parents must note that it is not compulsory to choose schools from category A especially if your performance does not match the competition for such schools. For instance, if you cannot make 7 to 9 once in the BECE, do not be tempted to choose such schools as your first choice.
