Hon. Sam Pyne, Kumasi City Mayor has challenged candidates in the ongoing 2021 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BEEC) to avoid all forms of examination malpractices so as to safeguard their results.
A total number of 111, 423 candidates are writing the examination in the Ashanti region representing 55,825 males and 55,598 females.
The supervisor for Centre ‘A’ at OWASS, Mr Emmanuel Amoako Nyanor said although they were ready, the papers were not in as at 9:10 am.
The Kumasi Metro Education Director, Mr David Oppong, attributed it to the time the West African Examination Centre released the papers to officers and the traffic situation in the metropolis.
Mr Oppong called on WAEC to work on its timing to prevent further occurrence.
