The Minister for Education, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum has patted the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) for working hard and employing systems to minimize examination malpractices in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

In a post on Facebook while sharing his experience with some candidates at a centre in Accra on the first day, he acknowledged the progress made in the national exam by the Council.

“I am pleased to share that I visited the Accra College of Education Demonstration A and B School to monitor the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). This year, 570,461 candidates are writing the exams at 2,123 centres nationwide. I had the opportunity to witness the participation of 8 schools at this particular centre.”


“I commend WAEC for its significant progress in curbing examination malpractices. The Education Ministry is committed to continuing our collaboration with WAEC and other stakeholders to eliminate exam malpractice in our country,” he added.


According to him, the serialization system employed by the Council has been effective in reducing the menace drastically.
