We must get another Examination Body to compete with WAEC for a competitive examination – William Boadi, CEO of EAI Urges
Following the statement issued by the West African Examination Council (WAEC) on the release of the 2022 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) results that revealed the cancellation and withholding of some subjects results of the candidates and the cancellation of the entire results of about 75 students from both public and private schools, the Chief Executive Officer of Educate Africa Institute (EAI), an education policy think tank has urged the Ministry of Education and the government to bring another examination body on board to compete with WAEC in the conduct of our external examination to ensure positive competitiveness.
He indicated that over the past years, results of WAEC-organized examinations have experienced a series of cancellations and withholding pending investigations he said there is a need for the authorities in the Education sector to bring another examination body that will conduct these external exams to strike out the difference between their work and that of WAEC to pick the best one to lead examinations in Ghana because WAEC has been consistent in preventing some of these young ones to further their education to next level due to these results cancellation.
