The Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) is the main examination to qualify students for admission into secondary and vocational schools in Ghana. An excellent BECE score enables students to attend senior high schools of outstanding academic quality, such as Wesley Girls High School.

Angel Amuzu, a member of the Dodoo Coding Club since 2020, scored an A1 in all six relevant subjects, placing her in the Top 100 Students in Ghana.

15-year-old Angel is a well-known young female leader of Ghana, having presented the activities of Dodoo Coding Club at functions of the British High Commission to Ghana and The German Embassy to Ghana, part of Ausw√§rtiges Amt in attendance of the German Ambassador to Ghana, Daniel Krull.

14-year-old Barack Nii Otto Dodoo scored five A1s and one B2, placing him in the Top 500 Students in Ghana. He will pursue technical studies at Mfantsipim School to follow his dream of becoming an engineer focused on automotive software.

Prince Danso, who is also 14 years of age, scored four A1s and two B2s, making him the best student amongst more than 250 peers in his public high school. He will attend Okuapeman Senior High School.

The outstanding BECE results of these students demonstrate the value of integrating after-school activities such as those of the Dodoo Coding Club, which help students further advance their numerical and logical reasoning skills through computer programming in their teenage years.
