BECE leakage: Stop depending on morality of exam administrators -NAGRAT

West African Examination Council (WAEC) has been advised to move away from depending on the moral integrity of examination administrators if it wants to avert massive leakages as has happened in the 2015 BECE.

President of the National Association of Graduate Teachers, Christian Addae Poku says relying on the moral behavior of invigilators and supervisors of exams is a sure way to experience ‘embarassing’ leakage of an exams.

The five papers- Mathematics, Integrated Science, Religious and Moral Education, Social Studies and English language were all cancelled Wednesday after WAEC discovered the process has been compromised.

It was an orgy of leakages as copies of the papers littered social media showing questions and worked out answers of the papers.

A national inquistion is currently ongoing to evaluate the whole of Ghana’s examination administration chain from the offices of WAEC to classrooms where exams are taken.

NAGRAT has made it clear, it is time for the monopoly of WAEC should be broken to allow other bodies to certify examinations.

Nonetheless, NAGRAT’s President wants West African Examination Council (WAEC) to invest in strong security measure to protect the integrity of examination administration system.

According to him even the Vatican does not rely on the morality integrity of officials there to ensure effective administration.
