BECE Candidates Asked To Resist Temptation To Cheat

More than 1,000 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates in 30 junior high schools (JHS) across two districts – Sekyere East and Sekyere Kumawu, have attended a day’s orientation workshop, to inspire and build their self-confidence ahead of the examination.

Held under the theme: “I can pass”, it formed part of the effort to help the candidates to resist any temptation to cheat.

BECE-300x163.jpgThe programme was put together by the Asekerewa Students Association (ASESA), a voluntary group that has been at the forefront of the promotion of education in the Sekyere parts of the Ashanti Region, with support from the Ghana Education Service (GES).

Mr. Kwame Appiah-Kubi, President of the Association, reminded the students that “cutting corners was not the way to go”.

They rather needed to have a lot of self-belief, to overcome anxiety and nervousness.

He said the watchword “is hard work” pointing out that, given adequate revision of what they had been taught by their teachers, there was no way, they were not going to pass with good grades in the BECE.

He warned that they risked having their examination results canceled by the examination body, West African Examination Council (WAEC), and their academic dreams unfulfilled, if they engaged in malpractices.

Mr. Appiah-Kubi expressed discomfort with the recurring leakages of examination papers and called for all to work together to end that.

Final year JHS students in the country would sit for the BECE, next week Monday, June 13.
