BECE BEGINS TODAY
Members of Parliament have asked the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) to take all the necessary precautions to ensure the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) papers do not leak.
Final year Junior High School (JHS) students will today, Monday, June 5 begin the BECE exams.
In previous years, the leakage of BECE questions has resulted in the cancellation of papers bringing untoward hardship on students and parents.
WAEC says it has put in place tough measures for a leakage-free basic education certificate examination this year.
Over 400,000 candidates from over 15,000 public and private schools are expected to sit for the exam at 1,702 centres across the country.
Public relations Officer of WAEC, Agnes Teye-Cudjoe, told Joy News the week-long exams will go smoothly.
The Ghana Education Service has also appealed to the general public especially security agencies, religious bodies, civil society and the media to help secure a leakage free exam.
Meanwhile, candidates at Denkyira Obuasi and adjoining communities, where residents have fled following the lynching of a soldier, will not be affected by the recent incidents that led the closure of schools in the town.
