The Minister of Education, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said no public school will conduct online exams.

This comes as several schools have updated their schedule to include online exams.

The minister was speaking with Serwaa Amihere when they talked about education during the coronavirus forced shutdown of schools.

In clip for their interview, the minister said “somebody brought a paper from one university that said we should go to online assessment. How can I accept online assessment when I know some people cannot get online, these are all options we should consider.”

After he said that Serwa Amihere brought the issue of students protesting against some schools that have announced online exams.

“There is no public school conducting any exams online,” the minister emphatically said.

Watch the video below:

We can’t independently confirm if the minister was categorically referring to universities when he mentioned schools.

However, it is safe to note that most, if not all, the public universities have officially communicated online exam guidelines to their students.
