Mercy Nana Ama Akomprah, a brilliant student of Achimota School, has scored all As in the 2020 West African Senior Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
The brilliant Science student obtained As in all eight subjects, including Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Elective and Core Mathematics, Integrated Science, Social Studies, and English Language.
Mercy Akomprah is a product of the Free Senior High School programme, an initiative that has seen over 1 million students gain access to free education since the programme took effect in 2017.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) provisional results of candidates who sat for the WASSCE in 2020 in Ghana show a massive improvement as compared to the 2019 batch.
Although Integrated Science and Social Studies 2020 results show a decline in the performance of candidates as compared to 2019, Mercy Akomprah is one of many students who have made themselves and their families proud this year.
Akomprah's laudable accomplishment has been shared on social media, which is continuing to garner congratulatory messages from social media users.
Nana Asamoah was one of the first people to note that he is proud of Mercy.
‘‘Wooooow congratulations,’’ he simply wrote.
Yaw Papa lauded the Free SHS programme and called on Ghanaians to support the government.
‘‘This is great and Nana Addo has done well. Congrats girl,’’ he wrote.
Grace Larbi noted Mercy has launched herself into a bright with her remarkable grades.
‘‘Congrats. Keep blazing more trails and don’t make the sky your limit.’’
In a similar story, YEN.com.gh previously reported that the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) flagship programme, the Free Senior High School programme which was very much criticised has yielded positive results. Results coming in have gone to prove that pioneers of the free SHS programme really took advantage of the opportunity that was given to them.
YEN.com.gh has sighted photos of the result slip a student of the St. Louis Senior High School who has scored straight 8As in the just ended 2020 WASSCE.
