The Ministry of Education is considering creating a past questions website or App for final year students preparing to sit for WASSCE for School examinations, the Deputy Education Minister, Reverend John Ntim Fordjour has said.
Hon Ntim Fordjour speaking in an interview with the Kumasi-based Hello 104.5 FM monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh said this is to reduce the cost of publishing the past question and answers booklet.
Asked if the government each year would procure the WAEC past questions for WASSCE students, the Deputy Minister said no adding that his outfit next year is considering developing a website for the question download.
“We are not going to print them each year, we have installed internet in all Senior High Schools so going forward we are planning to create a past questions website or app for students to access the questions,” Reverend Fordjour said.
He noted the first set of procured past questions (2013 to 2018) could not be retrieved from the final year students after last year’s WASSCE because the students were very happy and took the books home as their own property.
For this year, the Assin South Member of Parliament said the former questions (from the year 2015 to 2020) after the conduct of the 2021 edition of the WASSCE for School candidates examination would be returned by the students.
“We have tasked the heads of Senior High Schools and teachers to ensure students who do not return the books after sitting the examination are not given their clearance, the past questions books are government property,” he stated.
