Smooth BECE start at Nungua centre

By | July 17, 2015

Students arrived
at the centre at about 08:30 hours, and were settled and ready for the first
paper, English Language, at about 0900 hours.

The Ghana News
Agency (GNA) observed that there was no tension as students remained calm
before and during the examination.

The centre,
which is also a depot for the examination question papers, houses twenty-four
schools with 625 candidates sitting for the examinations.

Emmanuel Aheto,
a teacher at Prisdark Academy, told the GNA that his students were well
prepared and ready to write the examinations.

During a tour by
Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Deputy Minister of Education to the centre, he
expressed satisfaction with the conduct of the West African Examinations
Council officials, the invigilators and the students.

He said he is
highly hopeful the students would churn out good results and urged them to work
hard and abstain from examination malpractices.

Police presence
was also high as compared to the other centres because the NUSEC centre was
also a depot.

Joshua Oddai, a
student of Harmony School, in an interview with the Ghana News Agency said the
first paper went well.
