The Municipal Chief Executive, of Shai Osudoku Mr. Daniel Akuffo, has urged candidates writing the Basic Education Certificate Examination to eschew all forms of examination malpractices in order not to jeopardise their future careers.

He said this yesterday when he toured some examination centres in the area to access the progress of the BECE in the district.

He was accompanied by the Member of Parliament for the area, Mrs. Linda Akweley Ocloo, the Acting Director of Education Mrs. Angela Tina Mensah, officials of the assembly and the education directorate.

In all 1,299 candidates from 43 public schools and 12 private schools are writing this year’s examination at five centres.

Two of the centres are located at the Ghanata Senior High School (SHS) and the Osudoku SHS and  the Doryumu Cluster of Schools.

Mr. Akuffo urged the students to treat the period as one of the promotion examinations they have been writing in order to eradicate all forms of nervousness and fear.

“You need to be focused and do what is expected of you because the BECE is the first ordinary examination of your education that can make and unmake your future aspiration,” he added.

He urged the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and all supervisors detailed to supervise the examination to ensure that there were no technical hitches.

Mrs. Ocloo who had earlier presented over 1500 mathematical sets to the candidates charged them to remain focused in order to come out with flying colours.

This, she explained would ease the pressure on them, saying, “You have been writing examinations every day, the BECE is first to enable you to give account of what you have been learning over the years.”

Mrs. Ocloo stressed the need for temporary medical teams at the examination centres to see to the medical needs of candidates who may need it.


Mrs. Mensah urged parents to provide enough support for their wards during the period and charged them to monitor their activities before and after every paper and also advised them not to take any foreign material to the examination centres.
