Some supervisors in the Greater Accra Region are allegedly taking as low as Ghc 10 from students to allow them the free rein to cheat in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE).

Other examiners are also alleged to have made arrangements with schools, taking Ghc 200 so they are more lenient on their students during the exams.

A school proprietor revealed news of the cheating which he received from a source on the ground to Joy Fm.

Some supervisors of the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) are asking pupils to contribute not less than Ghc 10 each so they can have the space to cheat.

Other examiners are alleged to have made contacts with school managers in Accra, to pay Ghc 200 for them to allow candidates from their institutions the ‘free space’ to write their papers.

A school proprietor, John Odame (not real name) revealed on the Joy FM Super Morning Show that his school manager called him early Wednesday, June 7, and informed him of the development. He alleged that some other school proprietors he contacted in Accra specifically in the Ga East Municipality, corroborated the story.

“My greatest worry is the fact that we are now training kids who we expect to take good behaviour; who we expect to lead this society and now we are trying to corrupt their minds,” the disturbed school proprietor stated.

When contacted, however, the Ghana Education Service denied any knowledge of the incidents.
