WASSCE: Ghanaian students riot over strict invigilation

Some Ghanaian students taking the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) have rioted over the strict invigilation during the tests.

According to news agency report, some agitated WASSCE candidates at the Tweneboa Kodua Senior High School (SHS) in south Ghana’s Ashanti Region vandalized schools on the basis that invigilators were being “too strict” during the exams on Monday.

Similarly, students at the Bright SHS in the Eastern Region and Ndewura Jakpa Senior High Technical School in the Savannah Region on Thursday demonstrated against teachers over alleged “intimidation” by external invigilators during their social studies exam.

As a result, the Conference of Heads of Assisted Secondary Schools (CHASS) has called on for the provision of security for teachers serving as invigilators in the ongoing

National President for CHASS Alhaji Yacoub Abubakar told local media that the lives of teachers were in danger following a series of attacks by WASSCE candidates on invigilators and supervisors across the country.

“Wheresoever there is a school with this type of challenge, it will be good for a number of police personnel to be allowed to stay within the vicinity to ensure that there is peace and calm,” the president said.

“Once the students see that there are a few policemen around, it will control their behaviour to ensure the smooth process at examination centres across the country.”

The 2020 WASSCE commenced on July 20 with 313,837 candidates from Ghana.

The writing of exam theory papers started on Monday and will end on Sept. 5.
