The Coalition said though it understood the inconveniences that came with strict adherence to the safety protocols coupled with examination anxiety, adhering to the safety protocols was the surest way students would stay healthy during and after the examination.

It advised them to refrain from examination malpractices and ensure that they obeyed all the rules governing the examination to avoid the cancellation of their results and the other penalties.

“Candidates must be mindful that their toil from kindergarten through to Senior High School may be ruined if they fall victim to examination malpractices,” it emphasised.

The statement implored the Ministry of Education, the Ghana Education Service, the West African Examination Council (WAEC) and all authorities involved in conducting this year’s WASSCE, to ensure that students wrote the examination devoid of casualties in the wake of the pandemic.

The examination, to be taken by 313,897 candidates, started on Monday with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo sending them a goodwill message.
