According to the Convener, Nana Kwesi Coomson, this is “to empower the Candidates who are set to write their first external examination in August.

“As this is the first external examination, it comes with some level of examination fright. I was a victim of this BECE fright because as a teenager, I was wondering if I could make it in the BECE to get my dream school and those thoughts worried me a lot.

“I realised that most of my friends also had this same fright when they were writing their BECE so we came up with a tour to empower the Candidates so that they overcome this fright” Mr. Coomson added.
