Madam Justina Owusu-Banahene, the Bono Regional Minister has exhorted candidates writing the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) to remain confident and do independent work to pass their examinations to make their parents and teachers proud.

She reminded the candidates that they were only being examined on what they had already learnt in school and there was no need for them to be frightened.

The Regional Minister gave the advice when she toured some examination centres in the Sunyani Municipality to motivate the candidates.

“There is nothing strange or new in the examination that you have not been taught in school. So, don’t allow anything to scare you”, Madam Owusu-Banahene told the candidates and urged them to eschew all forms of malpractices as well.

At the Twene Amanfo Senior High/Technical and Sunyani Senior High Schools Examination Centers, the Regional Minister led the candidates through prayers and inspired them to put their hope and trust in God, as they did their best in the examination.

She also advised the candidates to be studious, revise their notes and avoid roaming around particularly at night.

“You have ample time to do whatever you want to do after the examination, so please, this is not the period to play around. The BECE is a yardstick to determine your educational journey and you must not waste your time”, Madam Owusu-Banahene advised the candidates.

The Regional Minister urged them to observe the COVID-19 protocols as well to protect themselves from contracting the viral disease.

In a related development, Mr Ignatius Anarfi, the Public Relations Officer for the Dormaa Central Municipal Directorate of Education also told the Ghana News Agency in an interview at Dormaa-Ahenkro that a total of 2,084 candidates were writing BECE across eight centres in the Municipality.

He said the figure comprised 1,071 males and 1,013 females under eight supervisors and their invigilators and added that no reports of examination malpractices and irregularities had been recorded at any of the centres.
