2024 BECE: 16 teachers arrested for violating exam rules

Currently, 16 teachers nationwide have been taken into custody for breaking the current Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) regulations.

New rules for the test were imposed by the West African Examination Council (WAEC), which forbade supervisors from bringing cell phones to the testing locations.

Nevertheless, some invigilators have disregarded these guidelines, and some have even tried to respond to inquiries from candidates.

John Kapi, Head of Public Affairs at WAEC, argues that this was incorrect since it hinders the Council's ability to evaluate the candidate's aptitude.

Therefore, to stop others from committing similar crimes, the teachers were detained.

Speaking to JoyNews on July 10, he said, “We have been able to pick up about 16 teachers from various places across the country. Some of them were picked up by our personnel. A few of them were picked up by the National Intelligence Bureau. We have reported all of them to the Ghana Police Service and they are in police custody.”

Mr Kapi said these individuals will be processed for court. Additionally, these teachers will no longer be asked to supervise any WAEC examination.

The regional head of WAEC in the Ashanti region, Divine Worlanyo Agbonyo, also observed several instances of teachers and parents attempting to feed students with answers, as reported on Luv FM.

He recalled that a teacher charged an amount of GH₵6,000 to aid in providing answers for students.

However, he said they had intel on him and his accomplice, who was subsequently picked up and barred from examination centers.
