WAEC Adopts Metal Detectors To Check Examination Malpractices At Exam Centres

WAEC adopts metal detectors to check examination malpractices at exam centres

As part of efforts to help stem the problem of examination malpractices in the country, the West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) is to introduce the use of metal detectors to check on students who use electronic devises such as mobile phones and electronic calculators to cheat during exams.

The measures will be used as pilot beginning this year’s Nov/Dec. Exams.

This was revealed by the Director of Secondary Education at the Ghana Education Service, Rev. Simon Asige during the 5th Speech and Prize-Giving Day of Kwanyako Senior High Technical School at Agona Kwanyako in the Central Region over the weekend.

According to him, any student who will be caught with mobile phone in the examination hall though would be allowed to sit for the exams, yet that particular paper would be cancelled.

He said the measure is to help minimize the trend of examination malpractice which has now become a common practice among students in the country.

Rev. Asige therefore called on parents to assists the WAEC and the GES to help stem the trend.

Addressing students of the school, Rev Asige also warned students to desist from the acts to avoid getting their papers cancelled.

Established in 1991 Kwanyako Senior High Technical School has a student population of 1,377, comprising 724 boys and 653 girls.

Out of this number 721 are boarders with 62 teaching and 42 non-teaching staff.

Adjudged the best SHS in this year’s Inter School Debate Competition in the District, the school represented the District at the Regional Competition and emerged sixth.

Last year alone, 103 students of the school gained admission into the various Universities, but despite these achievements, the school lacks an assembly hall and students have to learn under canopies and in uncompleted buildings.
