This year's West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) took off with a lot of issues just like every other year.
One such issue was the leakage of the examination questions which were expected to be confidential until seen by the students.
A student at Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School has revealed they got the Integrated Science II paper ahead of time.
According to him, it was because they sat for their paper two hours after the official time from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) since they protested against their headmaster.

Due to their access to mobile phones, which makes communication very easy, the students had the questions from their fellow students who had finished the paper by then.
The student spoke anonymously to Nhyira FM and admitted:
“We had the questions before going into the examination hall. Our friends in other schools sent them to us so we had solved it ahead of time. It took every student less than an hour to complete the 2 hour 30 minutes paper."
On Tuesday, students of the school held a demonstration over allegations that the headmaster smashed an invigilating teacher’s phone for no apparent reason
Aside from describing the act by the headmaster as intimidating, the students also accused the headmaster of physically abusing them.

One of them is heard saying the president should award them with marks they did not work for.
Another is also heard reminding the president about the fact that he is also in his final year and looking forward to people to push him forward.
