The Greater Accra Regional branch of the National Association of Graduate Teachers (NAGRAT) has extended well wishes to all candidates writing the 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).
A statement released here Friday signed by Rene Senyo Kwamikorkor, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the teacher union said, “The National Association of Graduate Teachers would like to wish the candidates of the up-coming Basic Education Certificate Examination which starts on Monday 4th June2018, God’s guidance and the best of luck as they sit for the exams.”
The group urged the candidates to familiarize themselves very well with instructions on the various questions before attempting to answer them.
“We want to encourage them (candidates) to carefully and thoroughly read the instructions on the question papers before attempting them,” the statement said.
The Greater Accra Regional NAGRAT cautioned the candidates against any form of examination malpractice.
“The Association would want to admonish candidates to stay away from any act of examination malpractice as it has the potential of destroying the brilliant future that lie ahead of them and not only that, but also denying the country of their contribution to national development.”
The teacher union further urged invigilators and supervisors who would be deployed by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to see to the conduct of the examination to discharge their duties in line with the established rules and regulations.
“To the supervisors and invigilators, we humbly request that you discharge your responsibility with due diligence, obeying all rules of examination to ensure that the exercise ends peacefully and successfully,” the statement added.
Hundreds of thousands of pupils from various Junior High Schools (JHS) across the country will take part in this year’s examination which begins on June 4 and ends on June 8, 2018.
The Basic Education Certificate Examination forms the basis upon which successful graduates are selected and placed in Senior High Schools (SHS) across the country. Enditem
