Each passing year, examinations are fraught with many cases of examination malpractices.

This year's (2020), Basic Education Certificate Examination(BECE) is no different from what happens every year be it at the basic level or the senior high level.

The West African Education Council (WAEC) has confirmed that the mathematic examination questions for the 2020 BECE leaked.

According to a news report filed by Kasapafmonline, the Director of Public Affairs at WAEC, Agnes Teye Cudjoe, revealed that before 9:00am today Thursday, September 17, 2020, the mathematics questions were all over social media.

According to her, some supervisors who had taken shots of the questions with their mobile phones have been arrested and are currently being interrogated.

“The issue of exam question leakage is a huge problem for WAEC. Some of our officials in Obuasi yesterday arrested some teachers who had collected GHC2.00 and GHC1.00 from the students ostensibly to help them in the exams. All these are malpractices that should be strongly discouraged,” she said.

Ghanaians have shared their comments at the rate at which the questions keep leaking.

Daniel Tetteh had a lot to say but most importantly he said WAEC is not a serious organisation.

WAEC is not a serious organisation, I thought they have done their homework well after the wasce but to my surprise the BECE is even worse. All the papers leaked thus from the first paper up to today's papers leaked more than 24hrs before they were written. I think the head of WAEC SHOULD BE ARRESTED OR SACKED immediately instead of these absurd defenses they have been putting up.

Theddie Abells asked when corruption would end.

Until when will this corrupt practice end? When will all the faceless officials behind this crime be brought to book?

Nana Sarfo Kantanka Shaira was quite peeved.

Are they not ashamed of themselves????? Shameless WAEC.

Madam Elizabeth Yamoah is a student of Agona Odoben Presby Junior High School (JHS).

The 60-year-old student is reported to be Ghana's oldest BECE candidate for the 2020 batch of students and is really looking to gain access to secondary education through the Free SHS programme.
