# BECE Mathematics Trial Test for JH3 students (Test 1)

All students in JHS are to take this BECE Mathematics Trial Test for JH3 students (Test 1). This test aims at assessing the understanding of candidates as far us JHS2 topics in Mathematics are concerned.

For both section A and B questions, we require students to show working. Answers should be showed to the Mathematics teacher.

Mathematics teachers can also use these questions as revision exercises for JHS2 and JHS3 students.

Let us prepare together for the upcoming BECE as we take the BECE Mathematics Trial Test for JH3 students (Test 1).

ExamHall.org has uploaded several BECE Questions for other subjects already which can be found at **HERE**
