A survey conducted by the Teacher Tapp following alleged leaks of question papers in the ongoing West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) indicated that half of the teachers in the country wants a formal investigation into the matter.
Last week, images alleged to be leaked integrated Science questions surfaced on various social media platforms ahead of the conduct of the examination scheduled for Monday, August 3, 2020.
But the non-profit-making organization (WAEC) and Ghana’s Education Service in a separate statement denied the leaks, insisting that the viral questions are fake and do not represent actual questions from the paper.
The West African Examinations Council (WAEC) attributed the spread of these images as a deliberate attempt by some unscrupulous individuals to undermine the integrity of officials and of the examination process.
A leading member of the opposition (NDC) alleged that the questions were deliberately leaked to improve the first batch of the Free SHS beneficiaries performance in the examination, a move the government has denied.
Teacher Tapp, a 100% free daily survey of teachers across Ghana, amid this controversy asked teachers what they think about the development and Nearly two-thirds of teachers told them that exam leaks are common and happen every year.
The teachers in a comment added that despite it has been an annual habit, they want the alleged leaks in this year’s examination to be investigated to avoid further leaks and enhance the trust in the robustness and fairness of the WASSCE examination process generally.
