Officials of National Security will Monday morning take charge of supervision of the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) as students across the country begin to re-write some of the cancelled papers.

According to the Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the security officials will be in charge of selecting of examination questions, printing of papers and distribution throughout the two-day period as part of government effort to enhance security.

Speaking to Joy FM, he said “Right from the selection of the papers through to the printing…transportation to the depot…to the transfer to the exam centres, National Security is taking charge and we expect that will tighten security and prevent two weeks ago will not recur.”

The West Africa Examination Council (WAEC) canceled some papers after detecting that some the questions had leaked and gone viral on social media.

The five cancelled papers were English Language 2, Religious and Moral Education 2, Integrated Science 2, Mathematics 2, and Social Studies 2.

“At this stage we do not know exactly where the leakages occur from”, he said. He adds that an investigative report from the National Security would play a significant role in how the exams would be supervised subsequently.

He revealed more people suspected to have been involved in the leakage of BECE materials have been arrested.
