Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa has on his own behalf and on behalf of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC) and chiefs and people of the region, wished candidates writing the 2019 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) at various centres in the region, the very best of luck.
Result of the week-long examination (Monday, June 10 to Friday, June 14) according to Dr. Letsa, “to a very large extent, determines your progression on the academic ladder” and therefore entreated all candidates “to go all out and give your best.”
In a press release dated June 9 and signed by the Public Relations Officer, VRCC, Foster Huno, the Minister was hopeful that the candidates would obtain good grades “in order to get placement at your first choice schools, and enjoy the Free SHS introduced by His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the Republic of Ghana.”
The 2018 Best Performing Minister however, warned the candidates against engaging in any examination malpractices that would “cast a slur on your image, that of your school and the region.”
A total of 517,332 final year junior high pupils are sitting for this year’s BECE nationwide with 37,785 of them comprising 19,978 males and 17,807 females across the Volta Region.
Meanwhile, Dr. Letsa will visit each of the three examination centres in the capital, Ho, which are Mawuli School, Mawuko Girls SHS and Kabore School Complex on the first day of the examination.
