Ghana Education Service (GES)

The Ghana Education Service has reviewed its decision to ban 13 students from writing their West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The GES dismissed and barred 14 students of five Senior High Schools from writing their remaining papers over their involvement in acts of indiscipline and vandalism during the 2020 WASSCE.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, however, issued a directive to the Minister for Education to engage the Ghana Education Service (GES) to reconsider its decision to ban 14 students from writing their West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE).

The GES has now reviewed its decision to ban 13 dismissed students from partaking in the exams.

The following students are now permitted to continue with their examinations in their respective schools:

Nicholas CobinnahKardimiel Suapim and John Kwofie of Sekondi College.

Simon Ameyibor (Senior Prefect) and Miss Juliet Amoakowaa of Tweneboah Kodua SHS.

Emmanuel AshiagmorPeter SissiAmeka NyamitseShadrach Diatey, and Alfred Attiso of Battor SHS.

Solomon BrakoAlbert Agyekum, and Robert Inkoom of Juaben Senior High School

According to a statement signed by Prof Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa, the Director-General of the GES, all other disciplinary actions taken earlier still remain.

“Heads of the affected schools should allow the students involved to come to the compounds to write any paper they are due under guardian escort,” the GES stated.

The students are also required to leave the school compounds immediately after the paper with their guardians.
