The Ashaiman Municipal Office of the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) has sensitised 277 Basic

Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates of the Ashiaman Government cluster schools on examination malpractices.

Ms. Salvata Mawulom Koku, the NCCE Ashaiman Municipal Director, stated that the sensitization exercise was aimed at instilling some good values in the candidates as they prepared to write their final examination at the junior high school level.

Ms. Koku explained that the candidates would soon climb the academic ladder to become responsible citizens who would take up leadership roles, hence the need to caution them against sending foreign materials into the examination hall, adding that such acts were criminal and could lead to prosecution.

According to her, some rules and regulations govern every examination, and the candidates were expected to adhere to such directives, saying that the NCCE also owns them as a duty to draw the attention of the candidates to the consequences
they could face when caught in examination malpractices.

She advised the BECE candidates to have confidence and believe in themselves that they would succeed after writing the examination.

She said the candidate must take their studies very seriously to make their parents proud as well.
