- A female student sitting for the 2019 BECE wet herself during one of her papers
- The supervisor in charge at the centre refused her request to use the washroom
A female pupil of Kulmasa D/A Junior High School in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba district of the Savanna Region, who is one of the candidates writing 2019's Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) reportedly freed her bowels when she could no more contain it.
She had no choice than to wet herself when the Assistant Headmaster of Tuna Senior High/Technical School, who doubles as the supervisor of the exam center, refused to grant her the permission to step out to use the washroom.
The pupil told Bole-based Nkilgi FM that she felt the urge to pass urine during the Religious and Moral Education Exam Paper 2 which was written on Monday, 10 June 2019 and sought permission on two separate occasions from the supervisor to use the washroom but was not granted.
With her bladder full, she said she could not hold it in any longer, thus, urinated on herself in the examination room.
She subsequently collapsed and was rushed to the Tuna Health Centre for medical attention.
Meanwhile, nine teenage mothers are reportedly sitting for this year's Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the Asante Akim North District of Ashanti Region.
Eight others out of the 1,216 candidates are also reportedly pregnant across four examination centres in the area.
According to Myjoyonline.com reports, majority of the teenage mothers come from schools in Afram Plains.
Education authorities anticipate the numbers could be higher from all 53 basic schools comprising 41 public and 12 private basic schools in the area.
