Nine university and two senior high school students have been banned from writing any West African Examination Council (WAEC) examination for three years by a magistrate court in Oda.
The nine university students included a level 100 student of the University of Cape Coast, Suzette Lamptey, 19; level 100 student of the University of Energy and Natural Resources, Joyce Assabil, 21 and level 200 student of the University of Professional Studies, Agyei Elias, 22.
The others are Antwi David, 19 a level 100 student of the University of Professional Studies; Anim Ansah, 22, University of Ghana level 100 and level 400 student of the University of Professional Studies, Adjoh Wisdom, 20.
Christella Agyepong, 18; Isabella Anning, 18 and former student of the University of Ghana, Desmond Agbesi, 26, are also among the university students contracted to write the exams.
Yeah, the court banned university students from writing any WAEC exams, yeah… they don’t need to write any WAEC exams if they are in uni… but what do we know…
This ban came after they were found guilty of writing WASSCE on behalf of some final year students of the PLACID international School in Akyem Oda, in the Eastern Region.
However, the final year students and a teacher at First Star Remedial School at Community 25 in Tema were also fined GHS1,200 each or in default serve a three-month jail term in hard labour for the involvement in the offence.
