A counselor at the Tamale campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Alhaji Alhassan Hussein has advised the 2018 Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) candidates to stay calm and not engage in any examination malpractices.
Alhaji Hussein offered this piece of advice when he interacted with candidates of Kanvilli Tawfikiya Islamic junior high school in Tamale at the school premises last Friday. The counselor urged the candidates to first read the instructions carefully on the question papers before attempting to answer them. He also asked them to be disciplined in the examination hall in order not to have their papers canceled. Alhaji Hussein ended the counselling session by wishing the candidates success in advance.
The head teacher of the school, Alhaji Alhassan Salifu Baako on his part, commended the counselor for his tremendous support and appealed to the candidates to try and return all school property, including textbooks lent them, adding that those school materials will be re-used by their juniors.
The BECE candidates began writing their exams this week. They wrote their first paper which is English Language on Monday nationwide.
