The fate of close to 100 third year students of the Action Progressive Technical Institute is hanging precariously in the balance because the school authorities have not paid their examination fees.

The students and their parents who stormed the office of the Insight last Tuesday claimed that they paid between 800,000 cedis and 1.2, 000.00 million cedis each to the school authorities.

The school authorities admit that the fees were paid to them but they explained that they could not register the students because of the lack of facilities.

Director of the school, Reverend J.K Amankwah, told the Insight that schools which do not have laboratories are not allowed to register students for the SSS examinations.

He said the school did not know that it could not register the students.

He claimed that the school has refunded the examination fees to at least 33 of the students.

A parent who spoke to The Insight asked, “how could they have been running a school if they didn't know the requirements for registering students.”
