The governing party’s youth wing has demanded, the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) lives up to its responsibility of administering a credible examinations devoid of leakages as Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) begins Monday.

Over 400,000 candidates from over 15,000 public and private schools are expected to sit for the exam at 1,702 centres across the country.

Since 2009, the incidence of examination malpractice has been on the rise, especially in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and the West Africa Senior Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSSCE).

Already, the General Secretary of the Christian Council, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, said on Joy FM’s religious programme ‘A walk with Jesus’ on Sunday that: “WAEC and others must spare pupils the painful experience of writing a paper, only to be recalled to write again because someone was irresponsible.”

Members of Parliament have also asked the WAEC to take all the necessary precautions to ensure the BECE papers do not leak.

The New Patriotic Party youth wing in a statement signed by National Youth Organiser Sammi Awuku said: W.A.E.C. has a responsibility to ensure that the perennial pain, inconvenience and psychological trauma inflicted on both parents and students as a result of its failure to observe best practices is avoided this year.”
