BECE candidates in new Juaben North get mathematical sets

Candidates for this year’s Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) in the New Juaben North Municipality in the Eastern Region are in high spirits.

They are confident they will make better grades in the examination, which is being organised by the West African Examination Council (WAEC).

In preparation for the examination, which started yesterday, Assembly Member for Gyamfikrom Electoral Area, Kankam Twumasi Daniel and Assembly Member for Edumasa Electoral Area, Parise Omane Otuo Acheampong visited basic schools in their respective electoral areas to donate mathematical sets to the candidates.

A total of 163 mathematical sets were distributed to 37 students from Salvation Army JHS, 60 students from Frihands Educational Complex and 66 candidates from Effiduase Roman Catholic ‘A’ and ‘B’.

Speaking to the media on behalf of the Assemblymen, Kankam Twumasi Daniel explained that “this is the first batch of students partaking in the WAEC exams at the basic level since I was elected as the Assembly Member for this electoral area. It is, therefore, incumbent on me to support them with these examination materials.”

The Assembly Member for Gyamfikrom Electoral Area highlighted the importance of the basic level examination in determining the future of the students and urged all stakeholders to provide the necessary support and attention during this period for a successful completion.

He also advised parents to refrain from involving the candidates in commercial activities after school, but allow them to focus on their studies.

The students, after receiving the examination materials, acknowledged the importance of the support in helping them overcome any impediments, due to a lack of such materials.
