Covid: BECE School results could be worst ever – Politician says
A member of the United Peoples Party, Kenneth Kwame Asamoah in the 2020 academic year predicted that BECE School results could be the worst in the country’s history amid the outbreak of the coronavirus that halted academic activities.
Ahead of the conduct of the 2020 BECE for School Candidates, he said the psychological effect of the locally transmitted coronavirus and temporal school break will affect the academic performance and grades of students.
In an interview with Atinka TV monitored by AcademicWeek, the UPP politician called on the Ministry of Education to put in place adequate measures to prevent any academic disaster as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic.
“It is wrong considering the situation where many students are contracting the disease. Out of fears of contracting the virus, the student may not focus on their exams which could obviously lead to mass failure,” the politician explained.
But, considering the smooth administration of the 32nd BECE for School, AcademicWeek.com is of the belief the 2022 BECE results will be the country’s best since no case of questions leakage was recorded during the conduct of the exams.
The not-for-profit organization (WAEC) this academic year administered the 2022 edition of the Basic Education Certificate Examination to two groups of BECE candidates (School and Private) for the first time at the same period.
A total number of 552,276 prospective candidates made up of 276,988 males and 275,288 females from 18,501 Junior High Schools (JHS) participated in BECE for School Candidates at 2,023 centres throughout the country.
In respect of the BECE for Private Candidates, a total of 1,132 candidates made up of 634 males and 498 females sat for the private examination. The examination was taken at 15 selected centres, mainly in the regional capitals.
