2021 WASSCE Leak: Education Ministry Must Organize a Workshop For WAEC - Dr. Okoe Boye

Former Deputy Minister for Health, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye, has charged the Minister of Education, Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum to organize a workshop for the officials of the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) on how to improve themselves in order to avoid the leakage of examination questions.

WAEC has rescheduled this year's Physics and Business Management examinations in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) following reports that the exam questions got leaked.

The two papers were to be written on Wednesday, September 15 but a new date and time is yet to be announced by the regulatory body.

"A new date for the rescheduled papers (Physics 1 & 2 and Business Management 1 & 2) will be communicated in due course. However Automechanics 2 & 1 will be administered today, 15th September at 2pm as scheduled," WAEC stated at a press briefing on Wednesday morning.

The Council also says it is monitoring some eleven (11) Senior High Schools cited for engaging in examination malpractices.

Investigations are ongoing to ascertain the truth or otherwise in allegations of cheating brought against these schools namely Ejisu Senior High Technical School (SHTS) at Ejisu, Anlo-Anfoega SHS, Tepa SHS, Yeji SHTS, Kings David's College at Somanya, Ideal College, Sunyani, Christ the King SHS, Obuasi, Modern SHS, Kpong, Modern SHS at Kintampo, Oyoko Methodist SHS, Agogo SHS.

Expressing disappointment in WAEC, Dr. Okoe Boye said; "The Ministry of Education must call more or less a summit or some workshop on how to go about it, improving the efficiency, developing the governance system and making sure the WAEC certificate becomes the number 1 document not only in Africa but in the whole world. It's possible."
