SHS students jubilate after final papers

Days after the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations ended, some final year students have started flooding social media with posts and updates.

In some videos posted on the Instagram handles of High School TV and Big House 360, the students were seen displaying wild dance moves in their uniforms.

In one of the videos, a young girl who had just finished writing her papers, was seen on the street dancing amid cars that were jammed in traffic.

The West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), which commenced on July 20, 2020, ended on Saturday, September 5.

It was written by 313,897 candidates across the country.

Despite measures by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to ensure a smooth process, the examination had its fair share of controversies with the leakage of papers and assault of some invigilators.

Some candidates in an attempt to express their displeasure destroyed school properties and took to social media to verbally assault state officials.

They were subsequently dismissed by the Ghana Education Service until the President, Akufo-Addo intervened on their behalf.
