Barely 48 hours before he sits for his final series of senior high school examination, a student of the Bole Senior High School has reportedly passed away according to reports available to YEN.com.gh.
A final year student of the Bole Senior High School has reportedly passed away only hours before his 2019 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) that started on April, 8, 2019.
Mynewsgh.com reports that the deceased male student was confirmed dead at the Bole Hospital on Saturday, April 6, 2019 after being admitted for complaints of stomach pains.
Unconfirmed reports have it that the deceased stomach pains were triggered after eating mangoes and cashew nuts days earlier.
Authorities of the Bole SHS have reportedly declined to comment on the development. However, Mynewsgh.com maintains that a delegation has since been sent to the family of the deceased to inform and mourn with them over the death.
Final year Senior High School (SHS) students are expected to take part in the WASSCE exams in various centres across the country from Monday, April 8, 2019.
YEN.com.gh understands that the first paper is Basketry 3 project work, and the last, which would be written on June 7, 2019, is Elective Information and Communication Technology.
WAEC has meanwhile announced some security measures to be implemented as the examination is being taken.
The head of its national office, Wendy E. Addy-Lamptey, disclosed that WAEC, will for the first time, capture the fingerprints of candidates who would be writing the papers as part of measures to curb impersonation.
It would also introduce CCTV cameras, e-marking software and computer-based testing to curb exam malpractice.
