A lost GCE certificate is really disturbing for any candidate who sat and passed the Exam.
However, some students or citizens usually lose their certificates due to unfortunate circumstances or simply due to sheer negligence, but can be recovered by requesting for a GCE Certificate Duplicate from the GCE Board.

The Cameroon GCE Board charges 50000 FCFA to recover and issue a duplicate GCE certificate after the original certificate is lost, and takes less than one year for the Cameroon GCE Board to retrieve and recover a lost GCE certificate.
