Some candidates taking part in the ongoing Basic Education Certificate Examinations in the Kumasi metropolis have threatened to boycott the re-sit of the cancelled examination papers by the West African Examinations Council (WAEC).

The candidates, who claimed they did not get access to the alleged leaked examination questions, said they did not deserve to be punished for acts they have not committed.

Speaking in separate interviews with the Ghana News Agency in Kumasi, on the cancellation of the papers, the candidates, who were visibly disturbed, said they were frustrated by the current events.

Clement Agyei and Ibrahim Imoro, both of the Sepe-Tinpom M/A Junior High School, told the GNA that, WAEC had been unfair to them.

According to them after staying awake for several weeks to prepare for the exams, they were already exhausted to do any meaningful revisions to enable them to write the cancelled papers.

They said with the current power outages, coupled with mosquitoes bites in the nights, they would find it difficult to prepare adequately again for the papers.

“We are fed-up with WAEC and we will no more write the exams but will opt for apprenticeship training in any vocation”.

Meanwhile, some teachers in the metropolis have also expressed disappointment about the cancellation of the papers.

They said the cancellation would disrupt academic work in some schools, especially the examinations centres.

The WAEC on Wednesday announced the cancellation of five papers in the ongoing BECEm, citing massive leakage of examination papers.

The affected papers are English paper two, Mathematics Paper two, Integrated Science, Religious and Moral Education (RME) paper two and social studies.

Meanwhile, Three Junior High School students have been rounded up for allegedly possessing some of the leaked BECE papers. Read more 10 arrested over BECE leaked papers
