Leklebi (V/R), 11, GNA – The Afadzato South District Chief Executive (DCE), has hailed government’s directive that candidates writing the West African Secondary Schools Certificate Examination (WASSCE), should not be prevented from writing the exams due to non-payment of school fees.
Mrs Angela Oforiwaa Alorwu-Tay said the directive, which was given by Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, Minister of Education was timely.
The DCE gave the commendation when she led a team to visit Leklebi Senior High School (SHS) Jim Bourton Memorial Agriculture School, Have Technical and Agate SHS to ascertain how the examination was going on.
She expressed satisfaction with the arrangements made so far by the schools authorities and asked the candidates to garner self confidence and view the exams as a normal classroom test.
Mrs Alorwu Tay cautioned them against examination malpractices, which she said could lead to the cancelation of their papers.
She urged them not to rely on tips popularly called ‘apor’ but rather strive to revise their notes thoroughly and comport themselves in the examination halls.
‘Your performance in the examination will open the doors for you to enter which tertiary institution you will want to attend,’ she said.
