The WASSCE Science paper 2 that some final Senior High School students struggled with on Monday, August 3, 2020, has surfaced online.
Students were required to answer four questions from the six that were posed to them to answer, with each carrying 20 marks.
These students, however, opted to engage in various forms of examination malpractice but strict invigilation denied them the chance.
After the paper, some of them held protests, destroying school properties in the process.
Others too made unsavory comments about the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
It is worth noting these students have also held protests after siting for other core subjects in this year’s WASSCE.
Their major concern is with the high level of strictness in invigilation and the 1.5-meter gap between seats in the exam hall.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Education Service has dismissed fourteen (14) of such students from various schools and has barred them from partaking in the ongoing WASSCE examination.
In a statement signed by the Director General of the Ghana Education Service, Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, he indicated that students who are in Senior High Schools where violence occurred will be surcharged with the cost of damage.
He warned that failure by the students to pay the cost of damage would result in the withholding of their WASSCE results
Also, three teachers have been interdicted by the Ghana Education Service and barred from invigilating the ongoing WASSCE as “they are further being referred to the security agencies for further investigation” over their role in the recent violent activities in Senior High Schools.
