The Ghana Education Service (GES) has sent a word of caution to all the 2022 BECE and WASSCE candidates ahead of their impending exams.
According to the educational body, there have been complaints from both Junior High School and Senior High authorities that the students who have been registered to partake in the 2022 examination have started engaging in all manner of wayward activities.
A letter dating back to 9th June 2022 contains a word of strongest warning and enlisted several punishable actions that should be meted out by the schools, WAEC, and other stakeholders to students who are found guilty of improper behaviors.
“Management of the Ghana Education
Service has reliably been informed
that some Junior High School and
Senior High School form three (JHS3
and SHS3) students consistently
refuse to attend school and classes
after registering for their Basic
Certificate Education Examination
(BECE) and West African Senior High
School Certificate Examination
(WASSCE)” The letter indicated.
Parents of students who engage in such undesirable behavior should be contacted and told of the consequences that will be imposed.
Students in boarding houses who are found guilty would be deboardenized
Such students should take the exam with the assistance of a police officer or their parents.
During the examination period, WAEC would not allow such candidates to the examination halls and centers.
All criminal acts of students must be reported to the police and other security agencies for action.
