WAEC is a statutory body that conducts exams for final year students to mark their transition from Senior High School to the University. For the past years it has been realised that this body sets questions regardless of the topic any school has completed or has not completed. This body sets the questions for Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone and The Gambia.
Over the past years, students perform creditably well in the WASSCE exams. The current government in the year 2016 initiated an applaudable policy which is the Free Senior High School. The government of Ghana gave the first batch of free senior High School student much attention because the acceptance of the policy would depend on their performance in the WASSCE. Much relief came when they performed excellently to the dismay of some people.Ghana produced 88% of the students who had all A's in the WASSCE. The reason of this success was because of their access to the highest number of contact hours.
However, opposite is being said of the first batch of the double track senior high policy. In actual sense,they are the batch to have spent the highest number of time at home instead of at school. Their plight was worsened by the arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic. I can therefore say without fear or favor that this batch is the first batch who has not been able to complete about 70% of the topics they are required to complete as at now.This explains my prediction.
The government must therefore put in much effort to enable the final year students to move back to school as soon as possible.
