Management of Ghana Education Service (GES) is urging all Regional and District Directors, Supervisors, and Invigilators to take extra precautionary measures to ensure that the 2020 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) is malpractice free.
GES is equally urging all candidates to be extra conscious of activities which will have the potential of undermining the integrity of the examinations.
In a press statement issued on Monday August 3, by the Head of Public Relations Unit of GES Cassandra Twum Ampofo, management says it “is particularly concerned with the tendency for some persons to take whatsApp shots of some Question Papers and circulate them to create the mischief that the examination questions leaked”.

“Any such reported case will be thoroughly investigated and all those found culpable will be made to face the full rigours of the law”, the statement said.
Some 375,737 candidates are sitting for the General Science paper today Monday August 3 nationwide. The 2020 WASSCE began on July 20 with Visual Arts practicals.
