The Suame Municipal Director of Education, Pastor Anthony Anyamesem-Poku, has advised candidates for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE), not to consider past questions provided to them by government as ‘apor’.
According to him, the past questions and chief examiner’s report are expected to guide the candidates in their preparations towards the examination.
Pastor Anyamesem-Poku, gave the advice today during a one-day workshop on school selection and placement for private schools at Bremang in Kumasi.
The schools which attended the workshop include, Precious Miracle International School, El-Shaddai Academy, Marvelous Stars and Glory City Academy.
He said candidates should value the past questions and chief examiner’s report due to their significance in passing examinations .
According to him, during his time in secondary school, candidates bought past questions popularly known as pasco, and studied the trend of questions and the required anwers or responses that Candidates must provide.
He commended government for providing such past questions and examiners report to the candidates to help adequately prepare the candidates for the examination, adding this is the first time a government has provided five years past questions and chief examiners report.
“Don’t think the past questions are the direct questions you are going to write. They are not apor. During our time in school, we used to buy Pasco ourselves” Education Director asserted.
According to him, the candidates should pass the examination in order to benefit from the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy.
Pastor Anyamesem-Poku commended government for the provision of hot meals to the students .
