- Headmaster of Redemption School Complex in the Central Region has been arrested for failing to register 34 of his students for the BECE
- All 34 BECE students were denied sitting the paper because they have not registered
- Checks by the police show he spent the registration fees
How would you feel when you get rejected from the exams hall as a BECE candidate and be told you have not registered when indeed you have?
This was the case with some 34 BECE candidates from the Redemption School Complex in the Awutu Senya West District of the Central Region who discovered that their headmaster had spent their registration fees.
John Afranie Mensah was arrested by the police after he confessed to this unfortunate act.
These affected BECE candidates have been weeping over this development while sharing their plight with Rainbow Radio in Accra.
"We have prepared for the exams but we arrived only to discover that, our headmaster did not register us for the exams. This is painful and wickedness,’’ a student revealed.
What this means is that students may be denied the golden chance to write the 2018 BECE exams especially when they have not been registered and index numbers not extracted.
The BECE exams have always been fraught with cases of exam malpractice especially when many students are always tempted with the urge to secure for themselves copies of leaked exam questions, popularly known as 'apor'.
The West African Examination Council (WAEC) has warned against this acts especially when half a million of students across the country (509,824) will be sitting for their BECE today, June 4th.
According to WAEC, “candidates are cautioned against engaging in any examination malpractice of any form, especially collusion, which is prevalent at the BECE".
All forms of cheating, according to the exams council, can be detected by the Item Differentia Profile (IDP) in their objective tests, or in their script during marking.
The total amount of students writing the BECE is 509,824. This is a sharp increase over what we had in 2017 which involved 468,060 students.
