Students of the Mfantsipim Boys School in Cape Coast are ready to write this year’s West Africa Senior Secondary School Examination (WASSCE) the headmaster of the school, Rev. Ebenezer Aidoo has said.
According to him, his students have prepared very well for the exam and would sit and pass the exams any day at any time.
The headmaster was speaking to Bella Mundi on COVID-19 360 aired on TV3 today, July 9 2020.
Rev. Ebenezer Aidoo said his students are in the right frame of mind for the impending exam despite public outcry that students will not be able to do so due to recent COVID-19 scare in some Senior High Schools across the country.
“My boys are ready for the exam, I speak to them every morning and evening and they have assured me that they are ready”
He also indicated that using the continuous assessment as a basis for the promotion of students into the next level of the academic ladder would not be fair judgments adding that the WASSCE examination remains the only best option.
He has, however, debunked claims of a recorded case of COVID-19 in the school.
