The Bono Regional Minister, Justina Owusu-Banahene, has cautioned this year’s West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination (WASSCE) candidates against all forms of examination malpractices.

She said although WASSCE remains the benchmark to determine the academic and life success of each individual, cheating would lead to the cancellation of their results and possibly truncate their education to ruin their future.

Madam Owusu-Banahane advised the candidates during a visit to some WASSCE centers within the Bono region.

The centers visited includes Chiraa Senior High School (SHS) in the Sunyani West Municipality, Wenchi Methodist SHS and Koase Senior High Technical School also in the Wenchi Municipality.

Eschew all forms of examination malpractice - Bono Regional Minister tells WASSCE candidates

The Bono Regional Minister stated “examination malpractices has caused “great havoc to many people who have regretted in life, but they cannot change the hands of time”.

She encouraged the candidates writing the examination this year to be confident, write and pass well to enable them to further their education to the tertiary level.

Madam Owusu-Banahane reminded them of government’s huge investment in them through the Free Senior High School (FSHS) programme, since the surest way they could justify the government’s investment is for them to pass the examination.

“You are the future leaders who will hold responsible positions and that is why your parents and the government had invested much in your education.

I am therefore begging you to do your best and pass the examination well but we will be disappointed if you fail us”, she told the candidates.

She urged invigilators and supervisors to avoid tendencies that could psychologically scare and cause unnecessary panic because that could affect the candidates’ performance.
