The Member of Parliament (MP) for Abetifi Constituency, Bryan Acheampong, in collaboration with the Kwahu East District Assembly has sponsored a mock examinations for final year Junior High School (JHS) candidates in the constituency.

The exercise worth GH¢ 20,000.00 was organised with support from the District’s Education Directorate to prepare the candidates for the upcoming Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

At a short ceremony to present the sponsorship package to the education directorate for the mock, the Kwahu East District Chief Executive, Isaac Agyapong on behalf of the MP said, 1,169 students in seven circuits, in the district’s public and private schools would be taking part in the mock examination.

He said 57 schools including; 10 private schools and 47 public schools would be taking part in the mock.

The DCE said the MP through the district assembly engaged 95 qualified examiners from the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) comprising examination markers, supervisors, invigilators and examiners to monitor the exercise.

He said the gesture formed part of the MP’s quest to improve academic performance in schools in the constituency and assured that the exercise would be conducted annually.

Mr Agyapong therefore entreated the pupils to do away with fear and concentrate on their books so as to come out successfully after the BECE.

The Kwahu East District Director of Education, Ivy Owusu, commended the MP and the DCE for instituting such an exercise to promote quality education delivery in the District.

She said the gesture would go a long way to help the students to overcome fear and panic that resulted in their poor performance.

Ms Owusu therefore called for a collective effort in sustaining the programme to help improve academic performances in schools across the District.
