April 08, 2011
Ahenkro (Ash), April 7, GNA - Mr Igantius Mwinbe-Ere Der, the Afigya-Kwabre District Director of Education, has urged candidates for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) to ensure that the examination in the area is incident-free.
They should comport themselves and cooperate with the invigilators, he said when he addressed more than 600 of the candidates at Ahenkro.
It was meant to provide the platform to give them adequate insight into the rules and regulations governing the examination, fixed for April 11-18 and help to prevent cheating.
Present were the Officers in charge of Planning and Statistics, Examination Supervision, Guidance and Counseling, Examination Coordinators and Head teachers.
A total of 2,742 candidates made up of 1,474 males and 1,268 females from 81 public and private junior high schools (JHS) have been registered for this year's BECE in the district.
Mr Der reminded them to be time conscious and appealed to parents to reduce the daily chores of their children as they prepared to sit the examination.
Mr Isaac Oppong-Marfo, the Deputy District Education Director, said he was confident of the successful conduct of the examination, given the hard work done by the teachers.
