As a way of helping to prepare students for the upcoming Basic Education Certificate Examination, BECE starting on June 10, the Foundation for Generational Thinkers (FOGET), organised a seminar for JHS 3 students from the Ghana National Association of Private Schools Greater Accra Zone 5.

The forum was to educate students on examination malpractices and also build their confidence for academic excellence.

The Acting Dean of Students for Central University, Dr. Gloria Dzeha asked the students to go to the examination hall fully prepared so as to avoid any form of malpractice.

She also advised parents to guide their children in order to prevent them from falling into the traps of corrupt invigilators.

Examination malpractice has been on the rise year after year so in order to help reduce or curb this menace, the Foundation of Generational Thinkers thought it wise to organize a forum for JHS 3 students in the Greater Accra Zone 5 schools.

The forum seeks to educate students on the effects of engaging in examination malpractices and also to build their confidence level as they begin the examination on the 10th of this month.

The forum offered the students the opportunity to ask questions on examination malpractices.

Delivering her speech, the Acting Dean of Students of Central University, Dr. Gloria Dzeha advised them to be upright in all their dealings.

She also noted that the rate at which examination malpractices are on the rise needs immediate attention.

The Public Relations Officer, FOGET, Owner Michael Ackwerh enumerated some examination malpractices students engage in and advised them to desist from such acts.

Students from about 30 schools were present at the forum.

An official from the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC), Augustina Henyo told the students that “examination is not a do or die affair” so they should take their time in the examination hall and ensure that they work independently.
