The National Teaching Council (NTC) has released the first phase of this year’s teacher licensure exam resit results. The release of the 2023 GTLE results comes after it announced the examination results will be out midday on June 20, 2023.
Prospective tertiary graduates who sat for the first phase of the 2023 edition of the national examination for teachers, the Teaching Council say are to visit https://exams.ntc.gov.gh/results only to check their GTLE results online.
Speaking to the Dialy Graphic newspaper, the Registrar of the Council said out of 7,728 prospective tertiary graduates who sat again for the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) last month in this academic year 1,277 passed.
The figure, the Executive Director of NTC responsible for the administration of the licensure exams said represents 16.5 per cent of the candidates who sat again for the examination, introduced to licensed teaching practitioners.
Dr Addai-Poku, who expressed concern about the high failure rate, explained that those affected had one more chance to re-write the teacher’s examination at the latter part of the year before its format and content changed.
The Registrar of the National Teaching Council (NTC) told the Graphic newspaper that those who would fail again would have to go for the revised GTLE, known as the Subject-based GTLE, which would take off later this year.
Dr Addai-Poku explained that candidates who would fail at their last chance and would want to continue to resit the exam would be those with first degree, saying “those with a diploma will be required to upgrade themselves to acquire a first degree before they can resit the exam”.
“We are reforming and restructuring the Ghana teacher licensure examination (GTLE) and we will start it this year with those who have qualified to write it for the first time,” Dr Addai Poku told the Daily Graphic in the interview.
He said unlike the current examination where the candidates were examined in numeracy, literacy and professional skills, this time around, they would have to be examined in a specific area of speciality.
Dr Addai-Poku further explained that a candidate who aspired to teach geography must, in addition to the three areas, be examined in geography.
