The Minister in his delivery at the GNAT @ 90 Business Forum said that said different set of questions for students in the same exam hall will be developed and piloted at the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and scaled up to West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) as a means of curbing exam malpractices.
“Different set of questions for students in the same exam hall to be developed and piloted at the BECE and scaled up to WASSCE as a means of curbing exam malpractices”, he stated.
He also disclosed that a programme has been designed to bridge the gap between performances of students’ performance in BECE and WASSCE.
“Another program to be developed to address the yawning gap between students’ performance in WASSCE as regards Southern and Northern parts of the country.
