In 2019, the government through the Ghana Education Service distributed Solved-Past Questions to all final year students across the country to equip them to prepare towards the 2020 WASSCE. Some of the students depend solely on the past questions thinking that they were “Apor” given by the government to past the examination.

The students after the integrated science paper descended heavily on the president for disappointing them because nothing in the books distributed to them came in the examination. The behaviour of the students have however be condemned by all. Meanwhile, some Ghanaians are also calling on the Ghana Education Service and Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) to conduct investigation into the matter and any students found culpable must be sanctioned.
