The issues ranged from chaos, excessive social distancing, difficult examinations, apor swerve, and late commencement of papers, to access to questions before the paper began.

One such issue was the leakage of the examination questions which were expected to be confidential until seen by the students.

2. Tweneboah Kodua Senior High School

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.

Final year students at Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical in Damongo have destroyed the school’s properties in an angry protest.
