In the wake of the rampant examination malpractices that clouded this year’s WASSCE, the Ghana Education Service has advised candidates, invigilators, parents and supervisors to desist from engaging in any form of examination malpractices in all the 2,158 centers across the country.

Madam Cassandra Twum Ampofo, the Public Relations Officer of GES in a statement cited by Bricy Boateng has charged the security and WAEC to tighten the enforcement of Covid-19 protocols in the upcoming BECE examination.

From statistics given by the GES, a total of 571,894 final year students from both public and private junior high schools have registered and are going to write the Basic Education Certification Examination on Monday, November 15, 2021, to Friday November 2021.

According to the West African Examination Council, WAEC, several acts constitute examination malpractices. They include, bringing foreign materials into the examination hall like mobile phones and prepared notes. Again, stealing of scripts, asking questions from a candidate and tearing of exams papers. Aside that, impersonation, leaking of question papers, collusion, multiple registration and insulting supervisors or invigilators form par of it.

We hope that WAEC will conduct this year’s BECE in a smooth and fair manner to reclaim their fallen reputation. The recent report by EduWatch about the 2021 WASSCE was disastrous and shameful to talk about. Although WAEC has denied the leakages of 11 out of 20 papers written in the examination, the records are there to prove that indeed leakages occurred.

We also hope that WAEC will do the right thing by blocking every loophole to prevent the leakage of question papers which in numerous instances result in the cancelation of papers thereby affecting innocent candidates.
