WAEC discloses 2020 BECE & WASSCE question source

WAEC exams leakages

The annual WASSCE and BECE questions candidates answer in their final examination are set by Ghanaian teacher per non-profit-making organization

This revelation clears the air on information out there which suggests that the examination questions are outsourced or set by third parties.

This mindset has also been a common thought among Ghanaians candidates who speculate the same.

Students have believed that the annual WASSCE and BECE questions from the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) exams at the JHS and SHS level are questions from an external source

Mr. Godfred Addo, Head of School Examination at WAEC, made these revelations in an interview sighted by Edulearnweb. As part of his submissions during the interview, he said.

Exams questions are set by our own teachers, we don’t go and hire people from the ‘moon’ to come and set the questions.

During the Facebook live programme “Engage WAEC” hosted by Winifred Ampiaw on Friday, July 23, 2020, the WAEC officer urged all final year SHS students to take their studies seriously with specific mention of the Integrated Science paper.

In his own word, he added that

“Candidates should make sure they take their studies seriously, whatever they were taught they should be serious with it, WAEC set the questions based on the topics they were taught in school”.

As an experienced staff of the examining body, he cautioned all candidates to be careful not to be scammed by some unscrupulous individuals claiming to staff members of WAEC, taking money from students and also promising them access to leaked WASSCE questions.

Winifred Ampiaw said, the question for each day and subjects are sealed and under a 24-hour security monitoring hence it was impossible for anyone to have access to them

He used the opportunity to send a strong warning to operators of rogue websites who scam students and parents to put a stop to their illegal activities. According to Mr. Amiaw, WAEC as an experienced and renowned examining body has put in place effective security measures aimed at clamping down such websites, groups, and individuals on all social media platforms to safeguard the credibility of its examinations.
