The Ghana Education Service (GES) has swiftly responded to an alleged leaked Integrated Science paper of the ongoing West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).
In a press statement issued by the Ghana Education Service signed by its Public Relations Officer Madam Cassandra Twum Ampofo, clarifies rumours and fake publications in the media. According to GES, the said paper making rounds on social media is fake and must be disregarded.
The press statement further states that, there is no WASSCE paper conducted by WAEC written by Ghanaian WASSCE Candidates called General Paper.
The Service has therefore advised the public especially final year students to ignore the papers and must not waste their time on it. GES also assured of proper investigation into the leaked papers.
Read below the full statement from GES.
The attention of Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) has been drawn to some discussions in the public domain that a paper of the on-going West African
Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) has leaked and the accompanying twist to the effect that the paper has been leaked deliberately to
ensure that the candidates pass the examinations.
Management of GES wishes to assure all candidates and the general public that the said questions paper making the rounds is FAKE. Indeed there is no WASSCE subject written by Ghanaian candidates called General Paper.
No candidate should waste his or her time on it and concentrate on their preparations.
Management further assures the candidates and the general public that the examinations are being managed by responsible men and women who will never sacrifice the integrity of the examinations for any other expediency.
The general public might recall the purported leakage of examination questions has become an annual ritual and should be seen in that light and therefore should not allow themselves to be deceived by any propagandist seeking to achieve some mischievous objectives.
All efforts are being made to track those behind the purported leaked fake paper
and that parents and guardians should continue to urge their wards to be focused and not to be distracted by these purported leaked questions.
