I Missed Distinction By Only 2 Points. I Got An Aggregate Of 14 Instead Of 12 -Clement Apaak Reveals

The Member of Parliament for the Builsa South constituency, Clement Apaak Abas, has revealed that he missed distinction by only two points. He got an aggregate of 14 instead of 12 without any access to past questions.

Dr. Clement Apaak made this statement on the 'New Day' program on TV3 this morning, 15th July 2021, when he lamented the prioritization of the provision of past questions to senior high school students by the government.

According to Dr. Clement Apaak, when government prioritizes the provision of past questions to students, it predisposes that our interest is to get the students to pass. That is not a classic definition of what we call education.

"It is not every student in Ghana who had access to past questions. I went to school in a rural area. I did the former system, O-level in Sandema secondary technical, and I missed distinction by only two. I got an aggregate of 14 instead of 12. I never had access to past questions.

I went to Nandom Secondary school, did my Sixth-form, and never had access to past questions, but I qualified and came to the University of Ghana, and today I'm a Ph.D. holder."

He added that the government shouldn't try to elevate the provision of past questions as a higher denominator because it is part of the garment of other interventions that have been made available to the students.
