According to the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), some candidates of the just ended 2020 WASSCE penned down love stories on their answer booklet instead of an answer to the questions.
The Head Private Examinations, WAEC, Mrs Veronica Asante disclosed this in an interview monitored by Georgeweb.org with host Winifred Ampiaw.
According to her, some prospective candidates on their answer booklet wrote “please help me to pass the exam because this is my fourth time sitting for WASSCE and if you help me I promise to do everything you want”
Others too said “please help me because my parents are rich so let’s make a deal”
The WAEC staff further said some of the final year Senior High School students even added their telephone numbers for Examiners to contact them, an act she said is another form of examination malpractice.
The WAEC official indicated that when a candidate enters an examination hall with a plain sheet it’s also considered examination malpractice.
