DAILY GUIDE has gathered that two female final year students of Adiembra Senior High School near Sekondi in the Western Region, nearly missed yesterday’s Integrated Science paper of the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for fighting over a boyfriend.
The two students were said to have been in at loggerheads over the boyfriend in the farming community for some time now.
They were reportedly engaged in a serious brawl on Sunday prior to the beginning of the examination yesterday.
According to sources, the fisticuffs involving the two female students resulted in blade wounds on one of them.
It was also gathered that the injured was stuck in her bed at her hostel as the two were being investigated by the school’s authorities.
However, a source at the school told DAILY GUIDE that the injured wrote yesterday’s first paper in pains.
Meanwhile, the school’s authorities have claimed that they are day students and that the school knew nothing about the incident, adding ‘more so it happened outside the school campus.’
‘Every student is either a day or a boarder student and once it happened outside the campus, authorities have nothing to do about it’, they explained.
All final year SHS students across the country began the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) yesterday with the Integrated Science subject.
The conduct of the first Paper in the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) in the region on Monday went on smoothly. At about 8:30am, candidates were seated awaiting instructions to start work.
Speaking to DAILY GUIDE in an interview, Patrick Wayoe, head of the Western African Examination Council (WAEC) revealed that a total of 18,555 final-year senior high school (SHS) student candidates are writing this year’s WASSCE in the region.
He indicated that out of the number, 9,201 males and 9,354 females are writing the examination at different centres.
He expressed satisfaction at the manner in which the on-going WASSCE was being handled by the authorities of SHS’s in the area, despite the challenges posed by the huge number of students writing the examination.
He was also impressed and satisfied with the preparations by the schools’ authorities for the examinations and how supervisors and invigilators were performing their respective duties.
