The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) following the adjournment of the conduct of two WASSCE subjects over leakage has called on the Ministry of Education to set up a panel to investigate the cause of the WASSCE leakage.
The Physics and Business Management 1 & 2 papers scheduled to be administered on September 15, 2021, Wednesday was postponed to a new date yet to be disclosed to candidates by the West African Examinations Council.
Addressing the media on the leakage and postponement of the two international examination papers, WAEC said it had put in place measures to safeguard the integrity of the ongoing 2021 WASSCE for School Candidates.
The Council also said it had stopped some unscrupulous supervisors and invigilators from monitoring the ongoing WASSCE amid their involvement in examination malpractice, an act it had described as the worst form of exam fraud.
But, the National Students Union in a statement copied to EducationWeb.com.gh has asked for the security agencies to investigate what led to the leakage of the examination questions of the soon to end 2021 WASSCE.
“As a Union, we believe its high time our security agencies should take a keen interest in the menace and bring to book the actors involved, we do not in any form support examination malpractice” NUGS stated in the release.
The Students Union advising teachers supervising the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) examination urged them to exhibit a high sense of professionalism and discipline in their chosen noble profession.
The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) further advised the prospective candidates writing the final examination to abide by the rules and regulations governing the 2021 WAEC examination.
