The government is urging candidates of the 2021 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) to refrain from examination malpractices.
Over four hundred thousand candidates would be sitting for the English Language Essay and objective papers today, Monday, September 13, in nine hundred and sixty-five schools across the country.
The examination, which started with the Project Work for Visual Arts students is expected to end on Friday, October 8, 2021.
In an interview with Citi News, the Deputy Minister of Education, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour advised the students to stay off any activities that could affect their academics.
He reminded the candidates of the opportunities available to them in the next phase of their lives.
The Assin South legislator thus urged them to give off their very best in the examinations.
“I wish the candidates that are sitting for the examinations the very best of God’s favour and the very best of excellence and we do hope that given the training they have received over the last three years, they are going to make us proud and are even going to do better than their seniors who completed in 2020, and we know that the kind of essential moral values that have gone with their training and beyond the certificates that they are going be receiving, they are going to be productive citizens.”
“There are amazing opportunities that are available for them. We also admonish them to stay away from all forms of examination malpractices and give off their very best.”
