Final year Senior High School students who began their WASSCE today have expressed optimism about the month-long examinations because it started on a good footing.
A cross section of students Joy News’ Hannah Odame interacted with today expressed their general satisfaction with the conduct and questions of the oral English paper they wrote.
A few students however complained of some challenges ranging from difficulties in understanding the questions, audibility of the oral tapes as well as mix-up of index numbers.
“Even though the conversation was audible, it was difficult to understand what was being said” a student noted.
Another stated “it was difficult hearing the voices clearly because the speakers were blaring”.
These not withstanding, Hannah Odame reports the students are generally hopeful because they believe the examinations have started on a good footing.
