Ahead of this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examinations (B.E.C.E) which commences today, June 13, the Ghana Education Service (G.E.S) and the West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) have rolled out some new measures expected to help curb the perennial exam paper leakages which have led to the cancellation of some subject papers in the past.
Speaking to newsmen at a press conference in Accra ahead of the exams, the Director General of the G.E.S, Mr. Jacob Kor said a number of measures including the involvement of the BNI to provide tight security have been introduced this year.
“Right from the time the question papers are carried from the depot, there is going to be BNI personnel accompanying the questions….. Also, [flying the papers to the exam centres including banning supervisors and invigilators from going into the centres with mobile phones],” the G.E.S boss indicated.
A 400,000 plus candidates from about 14,267 public and private Junior High Schools are participating in the B.E.C.E this year.
