The National Teaching Council (NTC) has released the results of the 3rd Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE).
A total of 27,171 out of the 34,724 candidates who sat for the examination representing 78.2 per cent passed the examination, while, 7,553 representing 21.8 per cent failed.
A statement from the NTC explained that six of the candidates, who were impersonated, had their entire results cancelled, while the seventh candidate, who carried unauthorised materials to the examination hall during the Numeracy paper had that paper cancelled.
RECOMMENDED: How to Check NTC Licensure Examination Results.
He said all candidates who wrote the examination could check their results from the NTC online portal at www.exams.NTC.gov.gh, either by use of their personal identification numbers (PINs) assigned them during the registration or their examination index numbers.
It directed the candidates to check using the PIN assigned to them during the registration or their GTLE index number.
The statement further asked candidates, who passed in all the examinations, to print their certificates from the NTC portal instead of visiting the offices of the NTC for the purpose of collecting their certificates.
“Candidates, who sat for the March 2019 GTLE and passed, should also print their certificates online from the NTC portal,” the statement further instructed.
Mr Addai-Poku explained that the targeted candidates were those who completed the colleges of education or those who read Education in the various universities and colleges and were desirous of seeking employment with the Ghana Education Service (GES).
Currently, the policy is that all newly trained diploma students from the various colleges of education who want to teach would be required to write the examination in their respective colleges or as may be directed by the NTC.
Mr Addai-Poku said those who were already teaching, both in public and private schools, would not be required to write the examination but would undertake a number of in-service professional training programmes to upgrade themselves to enable them to obtain the licence.
