“There are pockets where performance remains disappointing, there are also once top performing schools that seem to have suffered a deterioration in recent years. On the other hand, we’ve also recorded disturbingly poor performances among some candidates in some schools and considering that parents, government and teachers have invested so much money and effort in the training of students, this certainly should be a cause of worry.


“Our task, therefore, is to ensure that we sustain the excellent performance put up by our top students while at the same time supporting our weakest students to achieve at least a credit in all the subjects they present for exams," Mahama noted.
