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.
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.
