File photo: Pupils writing exam

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the West
African Examinations Council (WAEC), Agnes Teye Cudjoe says the greatest
challenge they faced during the 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examination
(BECE), was the circulation of fake questions and answers on social media which
led to many malpractices at various exam centres.

A total of 517,332 candidates from 16,871 public and private basic schools nationwide, made up of 263, 616 males and 253,716 females, were expected to write this year’s exam.

According
to the PRO, though the exam was successful, the circulation of the fake
questions and answers raised the anxiety of some pupils who were disappointed
when they got to the hall.

She
told Adom News reporter Kojo Hagan that a committee would be set up to
investigate the various malpractices.

She cautioned
future candidates for the exam to be very careful about fake questions on
social media.

She
also acknowledged the work of the Ghana Education Service, Ministry of Education
and all who supported for a successful exam.
