Before this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), applicants have received a strong warning from the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Nkwanta South in the Oti Region not to engage in any sort of examination misconduct.
The MCE highlighted that the BECE is just the beginning of the candidates’ path to a brighter future, and he pleaded with them not to risk their chances of success by indulging in unethical behavior.
Instead, he advised the applicants to maintain their composure, have faith in their skills, treat their studies seriously, and abide by the examination’s norms and regulations.
He thinks that by doing this, they would be able to succeed and get the advantages of the government’s Free SHS program.
The comments were delivered during a special occasion when Joshua Makubu, the Oti Regional Minister, gave over 2,000 math sets to Gifty Mpeneasah Nyarkoa, the head of the Mapniyacares Foundation and the women’s organizer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In the constituency, 1,982 BECE candidates were supported by the gift.
The MCE urged applicants to do well, but it also urged parents to help their children financially and emotionally so that they perform well on test day.
In her remarks at the presentation, Gifty Mpeneah Nyakoah stated that the intention of the gesture was to lessen the burden on parents who might find it difficult to pay for the essential educational supplies for their children.
She emphasized the need of aiding students to aid them in helping them focus on their examinations given the present challenging economic situations.
Jonathan Korsinah, the director of municipal education for Nkwanta South, expressed his thanks for the gift and said that the materials will help the applicants feel less stressed when taking the test.
He expressed confidence that the candidates had received appropriate preparation from the directors and expressed hope that this year’s outcomes will outperform earlier ones.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has confirmed that it would serialize some questions in the 2023 West Africa Senior High School Certificate Examination as part of its initiatives to stop test cheating.
By following this procedure, all applicants taking the exam in the same room will receive the identical questions, but with different question numbers aiming to uphold the integrity of the examination and protect against compromises.
