Students of the Okomfo Anokye Senior High School at Wiamoase risk having their examination results canceled if alleged malpractices reported to have taken place in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examinations are substantiated.
Officials of WAEC stormed the school last Friday following a tip off that teachers were using social network platform, WhatsApp, to aid students in the exams.
A scuffle ensued between the students and the police after the teachers were arrested forcing the council to close the school’s examination center. Public Relations Officer of WAEC, Agnes Teye Cudjoe says, the council has resolved that the students write the rest of the papers at the WAEC examination center in Kumasi, as investigations continue. She says due process will be followed to ensure thorough investigations before sanctions are applied.
During a visit by Ultimate Radio to the WAEC Centre in Kumasi today, four buses from the Okomfo Anokye Senior High School had conveyed students to the centre for a literature paper.
This inconvenience will continue till the exams are over, at the expense of the school, as the Ghana Education Service in the Ashanti Region investigates the matter.
