The Member of Parliament for Daffiama-Bussie-Issa has organized a mock examination for candidates in the constituency through the Ghana Education Service (GES) as part of his annual commitment to help prepare candidates for their exit examination.
Mathematical sets procured by the MP were also distributed to the candidates to equip them with basic tools to enable them write the upcoming examination.
This year's MP sponsored mock commenced on 17th August, 2020.
The examination was commissioned on behalf of the Member of Parliament, by Denis Andaban, the communication officer for the NDC in the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa.
Addressing the students in their respective schools, Denis Andaban said, the Member of Parliament is very passionate about education and health.
He added that the MP will continue to invest more in these critical sectors.
He urges tudents to take the mock exams seriously inorder to excel in the Basic Education Certificate Examination.
He further advises students to desist from any act of exams malpractice.
He however expressed his sadness over the behaviour of final year students of some Senior High School in the West African Certificate Examination (WASSCE) and passionately admonished the candidates not to emulate that act of indiscipline. "What happened elsewhere by your seniors, I mean those writing WASSCE, is totally unacceptable. Don't emulate them, just work hard and you will come out with flying colours."
Mr. Andaban again revealed that the best candidate for this years impending BECE will be given a special package and that plans are in place to recognize hard working teachers who are sacrificing to ensure that the standards of education is high in the district.
Girls were advised to take very good care of themselves after the examination since in most cases, girls after their Basic Education become pregnant or are unable to advance their education.
Students and teachers were very happy for the intervention by the Member of Parliament and expressed their gratitude and appreciation to Hon Sebastian Sandaare.
In the Daffiama-Bussie-Issa District, total of 529 candidates will sit for this year's Basic Education Certificate Examination.
