The Lagos State Examinations Board has extended the dates for the ongoing registration for 2021 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) for public and approved private junior secondary schools in the state.

Late registration will now be  from May 10 to May 21, 2021 for the affected students, a statement by Supo Gbagedesin, Director of the Examination Board, said on Thursday.

The registration which started February 15, 2021 was to have ended on  May 7, 2021.

According to the statement, public secondary schools are to collect the PIN for online registration of their candidates at their Education District Headquarters.

The approved private junior secondary schools will collect their PIN at the board after payment of an examination fee of N6,000 per candidate at the designated banks approved by the Lagos State Government.

It added that the late registration of either private or public schools would attract a fine of additional N5,000 per candidate.

Similarly, the circular noted that junior secondary schools with special permission and SRI will pay N9,500 per candidate.

The statement further urged all proprietors, proprietresses and principals of all approved private junior secondary schools to report at the Desk of Liaison Officers in charge of their Zone at the board for payment details.
