Mr. Gabriel Antwi, the Bono Regional Director of Education, has cautioned BECE applicants in the region not to engage in any sort of test malpractice during this year’s Basic Education Certificate test to avoid paper cancellation.

Mr. Gabriel Antwi, while urging applicants to follow the exam norms and regulations, urged teachers not to bring foreign materials into the examination halls.

Final-year students at various JHS schools around the country will take their BECE exams from July 8th to July 15th at various examination centres.

Mr. Antwi was speaking in a sideline interview with Ark FM’s Kaakyire Kwasi Afari on Saturday, at the grand finale of the 4th season of Ark FM Pepsodent Brain Challenge in Sunyani.

The Brain Challenge is a yearly quiz tournament organised by Sunyani-based ARK FM to boost JHS education in the Bono, Bono East, and Ahafo Regions as part of the station’s social responsibility.

Mr. Antwi praised the candidates for their outstanding accomplishments during the tournament and encouraged them to apply the confidence and experience they gained from the quiz competition to their final exams.

Mr. Gabriel Antwi also urged the applicants to burn midnight candles in order to disprove accusations of test misconduct in the Bono Region. 

The Sunyani East National Democratic Congress Parliamentary Candidate, Mr. Seid Mubarak, who attended the occasion as a special guest, challenged the government with settling all outstanding debts owned WAEC ahead of prior of the final BECE examinations.

He accused the government of failing citizens and lying about financing for the West African Examinations Council, noting that the government’s claim of paying GH¢80 million was a clear falsehood, and that only GH¢47 million was paid, which is severely inadequate.
