2020 WASSCE graduates from Senior High Schools (SHSs) where school properties were vandalised will have their WASSCE results withheld until full payment of the cost of damage, the Ghana Education Service has said.
The Service decision follows reports that final year students of some schools who sat for the just-ended WASSCE for School Candidates in protest against school authorities and external invigilators vandalised school properties.
An earlier statement from the Ghana Education Service (GES) shared with Georgeweb.org said “final year students sitting for the ongoing examination will have their results released after full payment of the damaged property”
In that regard, it is estimated that about (365) three hundred and sixty-five 2020 WASSCE graduates of the Damongo-based Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School will pay at least GH¢1000 to cover riots damages.
They during the protest destroyed the lightening system, louvre blades of the school administration and also removed parts of the ceiling of a new six-unit classroom block handed over to the school to end double track.
Automatically graduates from Senior High Schools (SHSs) including the Kumawu-based Tweneboa Kodua, Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School among others will have their WASSCE results withheld.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) is expected to by the end of this month or the first week of November 2020 release results of candidates who sat for the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination.
