12 teachers' arrested over Basic Education Certificate Examination malpractice.

Security persons' of West African Examination Council in collaboration with the National Security, has arrested 11 teachers and a headmaster over alleged malpractice in the 2021 basic education certificate examination which took off throughout the country.

12 were picked up at 2 examination centers in the Offinso municipality in the Ashanti Region Senase Roman Catholic Basic School in Berekum in the Bono Region.

An invigilator was allegedly caught collecting money from the candidates while distributing the answer booklets.

According to the source, when the teacher was questioned, she admitted collecting the money but explained that the candidates decided to contribute the money to her for free.

However w West African Examination Council officials believes that the money was meant to influence the invigilator to enable the candidates to indulge in examination malpractice.

In the second case, also in the Offinso municipality, 9 teachers and a headmaster were arrested at the Dwamena Akenten M/A JHS examination centre after they were spotted desperately solving the objective part of the paper.

The source further said at the Senase Roman Catholic Basic School center, Ransford Osei, an invigilator, was apprehended for allegedly taking shots of the papers and sending the snapshot to a friend to solve for him.

Commenting on the development, the head of the National office of the West African Examination Council, Mrs Addy Lamptey, assured the candidates that they could do well without resorting to malpractice.
