Minority in Parliament calls for cancellation of leaked WASSCE papers
The Minority in Parliament has called for the immediate cancellation of leaked papers in the ongoing leaked West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE).
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) appealed to the West African Examinations Council (WAEC), to ensure fairness and maintain the integrity of the examinations it conducts.
In a press statement signed by the Member of Parliament (MP) and Deputy Ranking Member of the Committee on Education, Dr Clement Apaak said the ongoing examinations does not merit what the Council is noted for.
On Sunday, August 16, the Core Mathematics paper scheduled for Monday, August 17, was seen circulating on social media with worked-out answers.
Although some people thought it was fake, it turned out to be genuine as the very questions were contained in the paper written on Monday.
“As though the leakage of the Core Mathematics paper was not worrisome enough, evidence exist pointing to a leaked Chemistry paper along similar lines.”
“Even as we speak, there are indications the Economics paper, being written today was leaked,” the statement said.
The Minority further condemned the leakage and publication of details of WAEC examiners.
They stated that “it defeats the purpose of a fair assessment system that it is supposed to ensure”.
This follows a similar leak when the WASSCE started which turned out to be a hoax.
